    2015 Update of the EBRI IRA Database: IRA Balances, Contributions, Rollovers, Withdrawals, and Asset Allocation

    The level of annual withdrawals from individual retirement accounts (IRAs) are being driven largely by federal rules that require people ages 70-1/2 or older to take distributions from their traditional accounts, according to new research by EBRI. These so-called “required minimum distributions” (RMDs) mean that individuals at that age or older must make a withdrawal from their Traditional IRA. In contrast, among owners under age 60, fewer than 12 percent of any age group had a distribution or a withdrawal. Press release.
