I keep reading that the CARES act declared I do not have to make a full RMD for 2017 but I cannot verify that anywhere. Iím trying to find anything about that in the act itself but all Iíve located is a discussion copy and not the final as passed.

It would please me greatly if true but cost me considerable $$$ if not and I failed to meet the withdrawal requirements.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

This has been confused with the SECURE? act changing the first withdrawable requirement to age 72 but that is not retroactive nor would it apply at 78.
