Who is Required to Take Required Minimum Distributions (RMD) form their Self-Directed Solo 401(k) Plan in 2022?

2022 Solo 401k RMD

Your required minimum distribution (RMD) is the minimum amount you must withdraw from your self-directed solo 401k account each year.

Unfortunately, you can’t keep funds in your solo 401k funds indefinitely. You have to start taking RMDs from your solo 401k once you turn age 72.  However, for the first RMD, the IRS allows you to delay making it by April 1, 2023, but waiting will result in having to also take the 2023 RMD by 12/31/2023.

In other words, if you wait to take your 2022 RMD until April 1, 2023, you will end up having to make 2 (two) RMDs in  2023 (the 2022 and the 2023 RMD).

QUESTION: Do RMDs apply to solo 401k plans?


How is my Solo 401k RMD calculated?

ANSWER: The Solo 401k required minimum distribution for any year is the account balance as of the end of the immediately preceding calendar year divided by a distribution period from the IRS’s “Uniform Lifetime Table.” Click here to use our online solo 401k RMD calculator.
