As the end of the year approaches, people start taking a closer look at those tasks that need to be finished before the calendar changes. One that always comes up around this time is Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs).
Whether you’re at the age where you have to start pulling money out of your qualified accounts or still a few years away, you need to know what’s expected of you and how best to manage those distributions. Many people don’t realize there’s a steep penalty if you don’t take the RMDs on time so we don’t want you to make that mistake.
