The answer to your question is "yes" you can roll over an IRA after retirement.

As a follow up question, I have a Trad IRA and a 401K. Does the IRS care what funds I pay the RMD as long as the total payed meets the minimum amount?

I am satisfied with your answer. I have a 401K that I will draw down to zero over 20yrs. These monthly payouts now exceed the RMD amount by 40%. Therefore I want to reduce my IRA's RMD yearly distribution by this excess to save taxes. The answer you gave indicates that this is within the IRS rules. Do you need more information?

No, I do not need any more information. Thanks for choosing JustAnswer.com and let me know if you need any additional assistance.

Thanks
