L1: 72t.net Closing May 1, 2019
Effective the morning of May 1st, I will be permanently closing 72t.net. It has been a good run and I’m sure that it has helped many people in setting up and operating their SEPP Plans.
Many thanks to the professionals that have contributed over those years you made the site successful!
I originally created the site on 9/28/2000. At that time I was eligible for a SEPP plan. Now, 18+ years later I am taking Minimum Distributions and my interests have gone in other directions.
Good luck to all :-}

Thank you for creating this great resource! Thank you also to all the knowledgeable people who participated in the forum.
I created a SEPP plan in January using the information available here. Between the William Stecker paper and past forum discussions I was able to find answers to all of my questions.
Your calculators and SEPP documentation form were extremely helpful too.
All good things must come to an end, but again, thanks so much! I continue to be surprised at the financial professionals I meet that have almost no knowledge on this topic.
Best wishes!

Thanks so much for your help! It has been a valuable resource. I hope you can at least leave the website as is for future reference.

Thank you Gordon for all your fine work that helped so many of us set up our 72T’s. I set up one in 2005 right after I retired, (after studying info your site for about 6 months) then I added a second one from another IRA a year later (to help finance a summer home mortgage) back when I was 55 and 56 years old, respectively. Great site and great advice and information. It was much appreciated. Enjoy your “Full” retirement now. Ken

Gordon, many thanks for this site and all your supporting efforts over the last two decades.
Maintaining a dedicated non diluted site for 72t plans with calculators and all the other supporting reference material has created a value that cannot be replaced. Questions might be posed on general forums in the future, but the tools to construct one’s own plan properly will be sorely missed.
So you’ll only have one method to deal with starting May, the RMD method! Best of luck to you as you continue your retirement.

Thank you so much Gordon for all your help. I found this website in 2006 and felt confident when I retired in 2012. My SEPP ends next April. I’ve enjoyed the discussion here as well. Someone should start a 72T Facebook page so we can keep the discussion going. I host a website that is my name net and taught myself how to write html. My page is not as good as this one. Congratulations Gordon.

Thank you for creating and maintaining this site for so many years. I have been blessed to have discovered the site three years ago and enjoyed learning from all of the wonderful contributors. What a blessing you and others have been in teaching others about SEPP’s and so many other financial-wise topics. Best wishes.

Wow! Thank you for the website. After much research and analysis, I started my own 72t plan end of March (yes, last week). It would have much more difficult without your website and the great information and tools (calculator, interest rates, sample plan document). Thanks again. I hope all is well, and good luck with your other interests, and take care!

I found this site several years ago, started studying about 72(t)’s, andwas able to create and finalize my own 72(t) successfully. I have learned so much from you and everyone else who had contributed this site. Enjoy your future plans!

L2: Thank you !!
I only discovered this website a few months ago, but I’ve learned so much from all of the information available here. Because of this site I now have the knowledge and ‘courage’ to begin my SEPP plan at the end of this year. Thanks for creating and maintaining such a great tool for all to use.
Best wishes!

Thank you ALL for managing this site and providing good 72(t) information and advise, as well as general retirement planning advise.
You will be missed. As has been stated before, most financial planners, tax advisers, and brokers do not have a clue, and probably do more harm than good. I personally spent $200 for an hour with a tax professional, looking over her shoulder as she looked at the IRS website trying to determine the rules for a 72(t). GFW – Best of luck to you and your family.

I just completed my IRA rollover last week in anticipation of starting my withdrawals next year. Sorry to see you go, but thanks for the wonderful information that convinced me to retire early three years ago.
