Generally - withholding from distribution will be 10% if you are above 59 1/2.

Withholding is NOT changed unless you specifically ask for that.

Here is the form to use

https://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/fw4p.pdf

You may prepare this form and send to the administrator of your 401k plan - they will be based withholding based on that form.
