Required minimum distribution

Q. I have a 401(k), several CD IRAs and several mutual fund IRAs. I will turn 70 the end of November. Do I have to withdraw a minimum amount from each account, or can I withdraw the required minimum amount from one of the accounts as long as it totals the amount I must withdraw next year?

A. Even though this isn’t a federal benefits question, I’ll answer it. You may take the total required minimum distribution from any account, or combination of accounts, you choose.
