What If You Forget To Take Your RMD? – Season 7: Episode 11
Whether you need the money to live on or not, it’s a fact that once you reach age 72, you’re generally required to take a certain amount of money each year out of your tax-deferred retirement accounts. These are your Required Minimum Distributions, or RMDs.
