Firm Dusts off RMD Calculators

October 8, 2002 ( - Still River Retirement Planning Software, Inc. has updated its desktop and web-based calculators for required minimum distributions from IRAs and other defined contribution plans, the company announced.

The updated calculators reflect new rules and new mortality tables issued by the Internal Revenue service last week.

In particular, the IRS has provided new guidance on what account balance may be used in performing 72(t) calculations based on Required Minimum Distribution rules, and on what interest rates may be used in the amortization and annuitization methods

The Still River systems will calculate using the old rules and tables for distributions made until December 31, 2002, and the new rules and tables for later distributions, the company said.
