Fidelity Simplicity RMD FundsSM

Take the guesswork out of required minimum distributions (RMDs)* by pairing a professionally managed, age-appropriate asset allocation fund with our automated annual RMD withdrawal service.

Why Simplicity RMD FundsSM

Managing your annual RMDs can be a complex process, with significant tax implications and potential penalties at stake. Fidelity's Simplicity RMD Funds can help simplify the process.

Use an actively managed, age-appropriate asset allocation mix for long-term performance

Remove difficult investor decisions, such as what positions to sell and how to invest assets during retirement

Let you consolidate your assets in your retirement accounts into a single fund strategy for RMDs

Single, diversified RMD fund option to help satisfy RMDs

The Simplicity RMD Funds are designed for investors who are approaching age 70½ or older and plan to withdraw the value of their account in the fund over time in accordance with required minimum distributions as mandated by the IRS. Each Simplicity RMD Fund invests in over 25 underlying funds to provide a diversified age-appropriate asset allocation mix.

  • Funds are specifically designed for the year investors begin taking RMDs
  • Asset allocation automatically becomes more conservative over time
  • Withdrawals can be automated to meet RMDs when paired with Fidelity's automatic withdrawal service

Choosing a Simplicity RMD Fund

Consider the fund that most closely aligns with the year you turn 70, as initial RMDs are required starting at age 70½.

As you get older and your RMD withdrawal rate increases, the equity allocation in your Simplicity RMD Fund is designed to decrease and the fund will become more conservative until it reaches an allocation similar to that of the Simplicity RMD Income Fund.
