If a person turned 72 in 2022, and died before starting her traditional IRA RMDs (required minimum distributions), must her three children take an RMD (based on their ages) in 2022 and for the next 9 years?


No. The IRA owner’s required beginning date for RMDs is April 1 of the year after the year she turned 72 (April 1, 2023). Since she died before that date, the children must only empty their share of the inherited IRA by December 31, 2032. No annual RMDs are required for years 1-9 of that 10-year period beginning in 2023. If the IRA owner had died on or after April 1, 2023, then RMDs would apply in years 1-9 of the 10-year period.


If a client’s birthdate is October 1, 1950, are the RMDs based on his turning 72 in 2022 or 73 in 2023?  The client received a notice in 2022 stating that the first one is due by April 1, 2023. But that occurs before they turn age 73, which is confusing.

Any help or insight would be great.

Thanks much,



Hi Wesley,

Since the client turned 72 in 2022, his first RMD is due for 2022. However, he was allowed to delay that first RMD into 2023 – until April 1, 2023. If he did that, he would have two RMDs paid in 2023 – the 2022 RMD due by April 1, 2023 and the 2023 RMD due by December 31, 2023.
