Calculate Your RMD

This calculator is for IRA owners and plan participants. It cannot be used to calculate RMDs for beneficiaries of IRAs and qualified retirement plans. Traditional  IRAs and qualified retirement plans (like 401(k)s) generally require the owner, or plan participant, to begin taking annual distributions of a minimum amount from their IRA, or retirement plan, when they reach the defined age. The defined age is 70½ for plan owners or participants born on or before June 30, 1949, age 72 for those born after June 30, 1949.

This Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) Calculator helps to estimate your annual distributions, and prepare you for a conversation with your financial professional about planning for yours. This tool calculates your RMD based only on the information you provide below, you may need to consider other IRAs and qualified plans to satisfy your entire RMD requirements.
