I understand my minimum distribution requirement, but what happens after I pass? I have set the account up so they go to my spouse and ultimately our two children. Is that right?

A spouse beneficiary may generally roll over an inherited IRA or plan account into an IRA in the spouse’s own name, allowing the spouse to delay taking additional required distributions until he or she reaches age 70½. As with required lifetime distributions, proper planning for required post-death distributions is essential. You should consult an estate planning attorney and/or a tax professional. LEARN MORE.
