- 2015 IRA Minimum Distribution Tables
When owners of a Traditional IRA reach age 70½, they are required to take annual minimum distributions. The amount changes each year. Simply divide your IRA’s value at the end of each year by the distribution period listed next to your age in the following IRS charts:
- 2015 Uniform Lifetime Table
This table is the life expectancy table to be used by all IRA owners to calculate lifetime distributions unless your beneficiary is your spouse who is more than 10 years younger than you. In that case, you would not use this table, you would use the actual joint life expectancy of you and your spouse based on the regular Joint Life Expectancy Table. The Uniform Lifetime Table is never used by IRA beneficiaries to compute required distributions on their inherited IRAs.
- 2015 Joint Life Expectancy Table
This table is used only for lifetime distributions and only when the spousal exception applies (when the spouse is the sole beneficiary for the entire year and is more than 10 years younger than the IRA owner). Beneficiaries never use this table.
