Right. After the first year the beneficiaries age is used to determine the RMD.

Well, it depends. If you are one of a group of beneficiaries, you'll not be taking it under your own life expectancy, but under the oldest persons (sometimes). And for some of them, I've seen it accelerated through a court order, especially when there is some dispute as to ownership. It can get fairly complicated, and if at all possible, leave it to your spouse, which will allow them to simply put it in their own IRA accounts.

Sometimes. If the inherited IRA is split and each beneficiary given their share in their own account, the following year each uses their own age for RMDs. Clear as mud.

And you wonder why I never venture to answer questions about this stuff!
Try explaining SIMPLE IRA eligibility sometimes, totally defies the imagination!

Only 25% of ALL eligible people took "advantage" of that "special deal". How did that work out for ya, Uncle Sam?
Take that tax man....Right on Dude.

Typical Congress, again showing their lack of due diligence on financial matters that affect real people.......

I would say the majority of people in the US can't even do so-called "stretch IRAs" because they don't have enough other assets to afford retirement and give money to younger generations. What was the point again, to "raise" $4.5 billion a year when we are $15.4 TRILLION in the red? That's like looking for spare change on the ground to pay your $300,000 mortgage payment...........
You are killing me, Dude, I like your thinking.

Exactly the way my three sisters and I are using the Inherited IRA from my deceased brother.
