Calculate Your Required Minimum Distribution From IRAs

The IRS updated the uniform lifetime table, which is used to determine your mandatory withdrawals, this year. This tool can calculate your RMDs from a traditional IRA.

Use this calculator to determine your required minimum distributions (RMD) from a traditional IRA. The SECURE Act of 2019 raised the age for taking RMDs from 70 ½ to 72 for those born after July 1, 1949

You’ll need to input your age at the end of 2022 and the total balance of your traditional IRA accounts as of December 31, 2021. Keep in mind that Roth IRAs do not have required minimum distributions. So you should not include the balances from any Roth IRA accounts.
