IRA Minimum Distribution Tables

When owners of a Traditional IRA reach age 73, they are required to take annual minimum distributions. The amount changes each year. Simply divide your IRA's value at the end of the prior year by the distribution factor listed next to your age in the following IRS charts:

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.

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.

Single Life Expectancy Table

Beneficiaries use this Single Life Expectancy Table based on their age in the year after the IRA owner's death. That factor is reduced by one for each succeeding distribution year. Spouse beneficiaries who do not elect to roll the IRA over or treat it as their own also use the single life table, but they can look up their age each year.
