The IRS has issued the Applicable Federal Rates for August 2018, in Revenue Ruling 2018-21.  Among other things, this rate is used to calculate 72(t) Payments/SEPPs.

When calculating a SEPP using the annuitization or amortization methods, an assumed rate of interest that is not more than 120 percent of the federal mid-term rate (determined in accordance with IRC § 1274(d) for either of the two months immediately preceding the month in which the distribution begins) can be used.
