• Do I use my current age or my age in December

L1: Do I use my current age or my age in DecemberI am 52 and I am going to start a 72t in April 2010. My birthday is in August. I will be 53 years old in August 2010 . The Vanguard SEPP fixed amortization worksheet says: “You must use your age as of December 31 of the year for which you are calculating your SEPPs.”Based on the Vanguard document I think I should use an age of 53 which results in a life expectancy fdactor of 31.4 to calculate my SEPP.Is it correct to use age that I will become in the year that the SEPP is started?Thanks2010-01-20 17:36, By: telcoguy, IP: [72.75.193.182]

L2: Do I use my current age or my age in DecemberYou are interpreting it correctly. Use your age (in the formulas) that you will have attained on 12/31 of the year that you take first payment, so age 53 for you this year. KEN2010-01-20 17:50, By: Ken, IP: [71.192.120.143]
