Stephen began learning to invest using his own money at the age of thirteen. While in college he began his career in the financial services industry while helping his mother recover from financial fraud.  He earned his BS in Honors Finance at California State University Northridge and received a special commendation for managing the University Corporation Student Investment Fund.

Can you use dividend distributions from an IRA to satisfy an RMD?
100% of people found this answer helpful

Yes you can.

Any distribution from an IRA account will count towards satisfying your annual Required Minimum Distribution, including dividends. Be sure to use this information from the IRS to calculate your annual RMD which considers your age and the prior year end (12/31) value of all applicable qualified retirement accounts.

If the total amount of dividend distributions you receive during the year does not surpass the total Required Minimum Distribution, you will need to withdraw additional funds from your qualified accounts to satisfy the requirement and avoid penalties.
