Lane. One more question on the past "immediate

Hi Lane. One more question on the past "immediate annuity" question. The person receiving the distribution will be 53 at the time of distribution on 2/1/16 but will be 54 on 8/25/16. Her beneficiary will be 55 at time of distribution but will be 56 by the end of the year. Thanks so much again for everything......I'm so sorry. She will be 54 and he will be 55 (not 56) by the end of 2016. I'm not sure how much this matters but wanted you to know......Jamie
