An IRA can be used to roll over a lump sum distribution from a qualified retirement plan. A rollover IRA provides a tax-deferred way to reinvest a distribution you may receive from a company retirement investment plan such as a 401(k), a profit sharing, or a pension plan.
- Postpone paying income taxes on your earnings
- Continue to accumulate tax-deferred income
- Avoid paying a 10% premature distribution tax (if you are below age 59 1/2)
Note: IRS rules require a 20% federal tax with-holding for most distributions from qualified retirement plans unless they are directly transferred to an IRA or another eligible retirement account.
