𝐍𝐎 𝐑𝐄𝐐𝐔𝐈𝐑𝐄𝐃 𝐌𝐈𝐍𝐈𝐌𝐔𝐌 𝐃𝐈𝐒𝐓𝐑𝐈𝐁𝐔𝐓𝐈𝐎𝐍𝐒 (𝐑𝐌𝐃𝐬) 𝐓𝐇𝐈𝐒 𝐘𝐄𝐀𝐑 (𝟕/𝟑𝟎/𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟎)

Retirees are not required to take money out of their IRAs and workplace retirement plans this year.

The CARES Act waives RMDs during 2020 for IRAs and retirement plans, including beneficiaries with inherited accounts. This waiver includes RMDs for individuals who turned age 70 ½ in 2019 and took their first RMD in 2020. Roth IRAs do not require withdrawals until after the death of the owner.

𝐁𝐔𝐓, if an individual has already taken an RMD in 2020, including someone who turned 70 ½ during 2019, the individual will have the option of returning the distribution to their account or other qualified plan.

Since the RMD rule is suspended, RMDs taken in 2020 are considered eligible for rollover. Therefore, RMDs can be rolled over to another IRA, another qualified retirement plan, or returned to the original plan.

An IRA owner or beneficiary who has already received an RMD in 2020 can also repay the distribution to the distributing IRA no later than Aug. 31, 2020, to avoid paying taxes on that distribution.
