    Are the distribution options for beneficiaries of Roth IRAs the same as those that apply to beneficiaries of a Traditional IRA?


  • An 80 year old individual has funds in a 401(k) account and a traditional IRA. She retired from the employer that sponsors the 401(k) plan as of January 1 of this year.

    She rolled over a portion of her 401(k) balance to her traditional IRA on January 2 of this year, as a direct rollover. This was the first distribution from her 401(k) for the year.
    How does that affect her RMD from her 401(k) account for this year? Can the RMD for the 401(k) be taken from the balance that remains in the 401(k)?
