Rollovers - Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs)
Question: How long do I have to roll over a distribution from a retirement plan to an IRA account?
You must complete the rollover by the 60th day following the day on which you receive the distribution. For information on distributions which qualify for rollover treatment, refer to Tax Topic 413, Rollovers from Retirement Plans. For information on the Direct Rollover Option, refer to Chapter 1 of Publication 590, Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs). To qualify for an automatic waiver or to obtain a waiver of the 60 day rollover requirement see "Retirement Plans FAQs relating to Waivers of the 60-Day Rollover Requirement."
Beginning in 2010, all individual taxpayers can roll over to a Roth IRA amounts from your traditional IRA, SEP-IRA, SIMPLE IRA or an eligible rollover distribution from your employer-sponsored plan. For additional information on rollovers, see Publication 590, Individual Retirement Arrangements (IRAs).
