IRAs - Part 2 - Rollovers and Transfers

Qualify the Money! The questions that need to be asked are:

1. "What plan type is it coming from?"
2. "What plan type is it going to?"
3. "Can the member use the funds between Point A and Point B?"

The answers to these 3 questions will put you on the right path to your IRS reporting. And, it's ALL about the reporting when it comes to IRAs. By not knowing the difference of how retirement money moves between the custodians and trustees, the credit union coding and IRS reporting may not match. This results in needless letters and bills received by the members from the IRS because they can't figure out what happened.
