The taxable portion of a retirement plan distribution (refund) may be eligible for a tax-deferred rollover to an IRA, a 401(k) plan, a 401(a) plan, a 403(b) plan, or a 457 plan. Check with the receiving plan administrator to determine if it will allow such a rollover. Surviving spouses have the same rollover choices as members. Members or alternate QDRO payees may elect to roll over all or any part of the taxable portion of the members contributions plus interest. The payment received from the Retirement Systems is classified as a Qualified Total Distribution under Internal Revenue Code Section 401(a) and will be reported to the IRS on Form 1099-R.
