By Sarah Brenner, JD
Director of Retirement Education

The IRS has released new life expectancy tables for calculating required minimum distributions (RMDs) for 2022. The most commonly used tables are the Uniform Lifetime and the Single Life Expectancy Tables.  The Uniform Lifetime Table is used by most IRA owners who need to take 2022 lifetime RMDs. The Single Life Expectancy Table is used by IRA beneficiaries who must take an annual RMD for 2022.

We have been getting a lot of questions from our readers asking where they can find these tables. For your convenience the Slott Report is providing them below. For future reference, you can also find the new tables (as well as other updated information for 2022) on our website at IRA and Tax Tables 2022 | Ed Slott and Company, LLC (irahelp.com)
