Employer Sponsored Plan rollovers
You can rollover an account from an employer sponsored plan
such as a 401(k), profit sharing, or pension plan. Complete
the Rollover form and indicate the company and the full plan
name including the Plan Type.
Required: Include a distribution statement that provides
detail of the type of contributions that make up the
distribution amount, such as pre-tax, after-tax or Roth.
You may be asked to provide additional plan documentation
to validate the distributing plan’s qualification.
If IRAs are eligible for rollover into your plan, you are
certifying on the Rollover form that the proceeds from the
IRA originated either from a qualified employer-sponsored
plan or from contributions distributed from a “traditional
IRA” from which you took a tax deduction on your federal
income tax return.
Required: Include a copy of your IRA statement.
An indirect rollover must be completed within 60 days of your
receipt of the distribution. After 60 days, the funds cannot be
rolled over to another qualified plan unless accompanied by a
Certification for Late Rollover Contribution Form.*
For a loan offset from an employer sponsored plan that was due
to (1) plan termination or (2) failure to meet the repayment
terms because of your severance from employment, the 60-day
rollover period is extended through the due date (including
extensions) for filing your individual tax return for the tax year
in which the loan offset is treated as distributed from the
employer sponsored plan.
To complete an indirect rollover you must send a cashier’s
check or money order along with your distribution
statement. The distribution statement provides detail of the
distribution date and type of contributions.
