RMD reports are here
We’re rolling out a new tool to make it easier to track RMD withdrawals on Altruist. With the latest report, you can download a convenient CSV file containing a comprehensive list of your client accounts eligible for RMDs in the current calendar year. The report includes critical data such as total RMD amount, amount taken YTD, and remaining balance.
We know how important it is to ensure your clients take distributions on time and avoid additional federal taxes for not taking the minimum necessary. We are committed to bringing even more features to help you manage and plan for RMDs more efficiently on Altruist in the future.

This expansion allows you to serve a wider array of clients, providing customized solutions for various business structures. With over 25 account types already available and more additions slated for 2024, Altruist is committed to being a comprehensive custodian for both individual and business financial needs.
