Megan C :

Thanks for requesting me!

Megan C :

Yes, I can do some 72T calculations for you if you give me the pertinent information

Customer:

Megan, the client's Date of Birth is 02/22/1958. The Beneficiary is 02/08/1954. I will use 1,000,000 as the IRA value. Can I assume that I can extrapolate on the 72ts for 1,000,000 to lesser amounts? Can you supply estimates under the 3 different IRA Methodologies?

Megan C :

I just have one 72T calculator

Megan C :

But i can do single, joint, and uniform

Megan C :

if that's what you mean

Customer:

So you can't do it for the 3 IRS methodologies?

Megan C :

I can do single life expectancy, joint life expectancy, and uniform lifetime for the life expectancy tables, and

Megan C :

and RMD, fixed amortization, and fixed annuitization for methods

Customer:

So I would have a choice of one of these to set up for the distribution. I guess I want to maximize the distribution but want to see the 3 choices sactioned by the IRS. Geez, I wish I could speak in person to explain! I'm not a good typist.

Megan C :

I understand. I think the three methods are RMD, fixed amortization, and fixed annuitization

Customer:

Yes!!! But you can only do one?

Megan C :

NO i can do 3

Megan C :

I didn't see the drop down menu

Megan C :

I thought I only had one of the methods

Customer:

Great!!! Pls. do Megan! Thanks

Megan C :

Okay hold on a sec

Customer:

Will do.

Megan C :

Thanks

Customer:

Welcome

Customer:

Take your time, It's important as I have a meeting about this tomorrow.

Megan C :

It's $33,784 on RMD

Megan C :

$41,850 on fixed amortization

Megan C :

and 41,542 on fixed annuitization

Customer:

Great! Megan, are there stipulations for using one method over the other?

Customer:

Or can you use whichever you want?

Megan C :

You can use the one you prefer

Customer:

Excellent! Thanks Megan, much appreciated!
