A New Day for Roth Rollovers - Encore
Presentor: Derrin Watson Recorded Date: 1/15/2014 Duration: 100 Min.

This program was recorded during a live presentation on January 15, 2014.

Piece by piece, Congress has built a house of Roth. First were Roth IRAs. Next came Roth 401(k) plans. In 2010 Congress added in-plan Roth rollovers. And in January 2013, Congress added in-plan Roth transfers. We finally have guidance on this new option. This Web seminar explains all the Roth rules as we now understand them, and puts the new transfer option into perspective.

Topics include:

  • Eligible plans
  • Effective date
  • Roth deferrals
  • Roth rollovers from other plans
  • In-plan Roth rollovers
    • No need for distributable event
    • Account and vesting restrictions
    • Taxation
  • Transfer of amounts with basis (after-tax contributions)
  • Withholding concerns
  • Reporting rollovers
  • Extended amendment deadlines and document issues
  • Participant tax issues
    • Income inclusion
    • 10% penalty tax
      • On transfer
      • On early withdrawal
