L1: Ending SEPP under RR 2002-62
I’m under 72t Rev Ruling 2002-62. I turn 59 1/2 Jan 31. I’ve been taking the annual amount on a monthly basis. For my final payment doI just get my last RMD calculated check in January based on the pro-rated monthly amount or should I take the entire calculated
annual payment amount out before I turn 59 1/2? Then in February can I take any additional income out under normal distribution?
FYI – my first payment was fixed ammoritization method starting in 2002, I switched to the RMD method 5 years ago.
Please advise on if I should take the annual calculated amount before I turn 59 1/2 on 1/31/12, or take 1/12 of the annual payment, or have I satisfied and should take nothing?
Thanks in advance.

You should take nothing out in January since your plan ends in January.
Chances are nothing would happen if you took out the full annual or 1/12 the full annual as well, but the lowest riskoption is to take out nothing in January. After aboutFeb 3rdas a small safety margin, you can do anything you wish with the IRAas your
plan is clearly over.
Taking nothing also eliminates the possibility of a calculation error under the RMD method since each calendar year requires a complete new calculation. It will also eliminate your receipt of a 1099R coded anything but 7 for 2012.
