  1. 1. Required Minimum Distribution (RMD)FAQS Aviva Life and Annuity Company What is a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) for a Traditional IRA? An amount of money that the Internal Revenue Service requires a policy owner to withdraw from a Traditional IRA account by April 1 following the year in which the policy owner turns age 70 1/2. The policy owner must continue to take out the required amount each year thereafter. There are other quali ed accounts such as 403(b) plans or pension/pro t sharing plans that may also require an RMD at 70 1/2 if the owner is no longer working. For more information, please consult your tax advisor or call us at our Customer Service toll-free number: 1-888-ANNUITY (1 888 266 8489). Do I have to take an RMD every year? Yes. You will need to take your RMD each year by December 31. You may defer your rst RMD to April 1 of the year following the year in which you turned age 70 ½. All subsequent RMDs must by taken by December 31. I did not have to take an RMD in 2009. Do I have to take an RMD in 2010? Yes. The Worker, Retiree, and Employer Recovery Act waived the RMD for 2009. The waiver only applied to 2009, and was not extended to 2010. You will need to take your RMD by December 31, 2010. How is the RMD calculated? The RMD is calculated by dividing your IRA balance as of December 31 of the previous year by your life expectancy. The IRS provides a table of life expectancy factors to use in this calculation. The formula can be described as: Accumulated Value as December 31 ÷ IRS Determined Life Expectancy Factor = Required Minimum Distribution Do I need to calculate my RMD myself? No. Aviva will calculate your RMD for you for your contract(s) at Aviva. Do I have to request my RMD each year? You are required to take an RMD each year.
