Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) – Latest Guidance

On July 14, 2023, IRS released Notice 2023-54 providing Transition Relief for:

  1. The change in beginning date for RMDs
  2. 2023 missed RMDs for IRA beneficiaries subject to the requirement for annual RMDs under the “10-Year Payment Rule” – postponing the applicability of the final regulations to 2024


Transition Relief for “Mistaken” Initial RMD Payouts in 2023

Were you born in 1951 and received your “initial” RMD between Jan 1, 2023 and July 31, 2023? If yes, then read on:

  • Your “initial” RMD will be for 2024 (the year you turn 73).
  • Your “initial” RMD can be taken as late as April 1, 2025.
  • So, the mistaken RMD received between Jan 1, 2023 and July 31, 2023 can be rolled over by September 30, 2023, if you did not want it.


New Payout Rules Delayed for Inherited Retirement Accounts

A Non-Eligible Designated Beneficiary (NEDB) is a beneficiary of a retirement account who is not one of those listed below:

  • Spouse of the deceased account holder
  • Minor child of the deceased account holder
  • Disabled individual
  • Chronically ill individual
  • Individual who is not more than 10 years younger than the IRA owner or plan participant

Are you a NEDB subject to the “10-Year Payment” Rule for the inherited retirement account of an owner who died in 2020, 2021 or 2022, on or after their Required Beginning Date (RBD)? If yes, then read on:

  • In addition to the 10-year payout, annual RMDs are required in years 1 to 9 of the 10-year period.
  • You will not be penalized for the missed 2021, 2022 & 2023 RMDs.


Guidance is still pending whether NEDBs who missed their RMDs will be required in the future to make them up!
