When do I have to start taking the money out of an IRA?

If you have a traditional IRA, you must take required minimum distributions starting in the year you turn 70 ½. The amount of the distribution depends on how much you have saved in the account and on your life expectancy, according to tables published by the IRS. If you own a Roth, you can leave the money in for as long as you want.
