The NewRetirement Planner, the most user-powerful financial planning tool online, has been updated with the new Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) ages that became law last week when President Biden signed the omnibus spending bill. Beginning on Jan. 1, 2023, the age to start taking RMDs jumps from 72 to 73 and it increases again in 2033 to 75.
People who create a financial plan with NewRetirement can now see the impact of the new RMD ages on their projected income, taxes, and Roth conversion strategies. (Not even the IRS has organized all their online info.)
“Hundreds of thousands of users rely on our software for accurate financial projections. Even though it is the holiday season, we wanted to scramble to update our model with this change because it will impact decisions people are making today,” said Steve Chen, founder and CEO of NewRetirement. “The new RMD ages will have a significant impact on the plans of some people and will shift strategies they have in place for the future,” he continued.
NewRetirement makes it easy to take full control over your financial future. The model has been updated with the new RMD ages.

Depending on your birth date, the RMD age is increasing as follows, if you are born:
The delayed start of RMDs will be helpful to some people. Leaving your money untouched will reduce near term taxes and retain the money for future use. However, the delayed RMD start age may increase future taxes for some people as it may require withdrawing a greater amount over a shorter time period. The new RMD ages may also impact Roth conversion strategies.
The NewRetirement Planner helps people make better decisions about their money and can now show people the impact that the new RMD ages will have on their plans. People can now use the NewRetirement Planner to:
