In today’s episode of Adam Talks, Adam Bergman, Esq. provides an update on the Inherited IRA rules and explains what you need to know if you are a beneficiary of an IRA.
Inherited IRA Rules – Have They Changed?
Adam Bergman discusses the changes to the rules surrounding inherited IRAs, particularly for non-spouse beneficiaries. The original SECURE Act introduced the ten-year rule in 2019, but the IRS did not provide regulations until February 2022. The proposed regulations were criticized for being too complicated; updated regulations are expected to be promulgated soon. The RMD rules were thrown away in 2021 and 2022 due to the confusion, but they will come back in 2023 based on the 2022 value. The rules only apply to non-spouse beneficiaries; if the account holder’s spouse died, the IRA would go to the spouse. Bergman hopes that the final regulations will be simple and easy to understand.
