IRS Issues Updated Eligible Rollover Distribution Notices - Plans Should Begin Using Immediately
Most retirement plans (including profit sharing, 401(k), and 403(b) plans) are required to provide participants with an explanation of the rules for making an eligible rollover distribution and the tax rules for distributions that are not rolled over. Generally, this rollover notice is part of the participant’s distribution election packet.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) publishes model rollover notices, titled “Your Rollover Options,” and updates them from time to time. While plan administrators can rely on the IRS model notices to meet their rollover notice requirement, they are nonetheless still responsible for updating them for applicable changes in the law.
