EP 101: A Nifty Way to Access Your IRA In Retirement

Retirement looks different for every ER Doc. Many plan to retire early. Others may reduce workload and extend their working years. Aligning retirement with a spouse is another common goal. Regardless of the way you retire, how you access your retirement savings should be a major point of interest, especially if you are being tax and investment allocation conscious.

Yet, it’s the way most people end up handling things. On today’s episode, we discuss a different way – one that is often overlooked or unknown.

  • How to access your IRA in retirement.
  • How to calculate your Required Minimum Distribution.
