L4: how long does it take to setup a 72tChee:
I set up my 72t plan with Vanguard in early 2005. I did the calcs, filled out their form, mailed it in, and got the 1st distribution in about 2 weeks. I suppose that this can vary widely with various custodians but that was my experience.
Doing the calcs took about 30 minutes. I went over it a few times to be sure that I hadn’t made any errors and then checked the result with the calculator on this web site. The results were within about $0.50 for a $33k annual distribution, so a very good match.
Filling out Vanguard’s form also took about 30 minutes, so the actual time spent setting up the SEPP was very small compared to the time spend doing research on SEPP plans, how they work, what they can do, possible problems, etc.
There is a book available on this web site that goes into all of these details. I did not get it but I should have. It would have saved me MANY hours of Internet searching.
