HI. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
The first required minimum distribution from IRA must be made on or before April 1 of the year following the calendar year in which you reach age 70½. Which means, in her case April 1, 2018. The subsequent distributions must be made by the end of the year. So she can take one distribution in 2017 or 2 in 2018.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
