Can an individual have more than one 72T. Thank you

Lane :

Hi,

Lane :

Yes, the 72T rues are applies to see whether or a not distributions from the IRA are subject to the penalty....

Lane :

If the second IRA is truly a separate account, the THAT IRA will have the same guidelines, tests, based on when the SEP payments were started from THAT IRA

Lane :

See this from Ed Slott, one of the premier IRA experts in the country:

Lane :

Yes, that is correct. You can select only one IRA for the 72t plan, but you cannot use only part of the balance any IRA accounts you select. Therefore, before the plan is started a reverse calculator should be used to determine the account balance needed to produce the annual distribution needed. The max interest rate should be used and an individual (not joint) calculation done. Various direct transfers between IRA account should then be done to create an IRA account that holds the balance indicated by the reverse calculator. The other IRA accounts not part of the 72t plan can be used for emergency needs or be used to start a second independent 72t plan later on if living costs increase. Each plan is totally independent of the other.

The answer is yes.

Thanks much!
