New IRS Guidance Concerning 2009 RMD Waivers


Last week, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced guidance concerning qualified plan operations and rollovers that are (or could be) affected by the waiver of a 2009 required minimum distribution (RMD) under the Worker, Retiree, and Employer Recovery Act (WRERA) of 2008 (Pub. L. No. 110-458).
