Spouse beneficiaries. Spouses of IRA owners have the most flexibility when it comes to inherited IRAs. They can choose to treat the IRA as their own, in which case they will be subject to the same distribution rules as the original owner.

Or, they can choose to keep the IRA in their own name as an inherited IRA, in which case they will be subject to the 10-year rule.
