Use this calculator to determine your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD). The IRS requires that you withdraw at least a minimum amount - known as a Required Minimum Distribution - from some types of retirement accounts annually. The distributions are required to start when you turn age 72 (or 70 1/2 if you were born before 7/1/1949). This calculator has been updated for the 'SECURE Act of 2019 and CARES Act of 2020'.
