This article helps to clarify a conversation I had just yesterday with someone at my local Chase Bank.  They offered to redo our IRAS with no RMDs and give us a higher rate.  I found this weird because Chase is infamous for it's low rates and it seems they suddenly actually want us to keep our deposits with them.  They were the same bank whose former manager told me they didn't need our deposits because they could get all the money they needed at zero interest rates from the Fed.  Have the chickens finally come home to roost as the ole saying goes?

I noticed I made a type error in my above post.  It isn't RMDs that I meant but EWPs.  Sorry about that.
