- 1. These amounts are subject to annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLA). Current information reflects 2021 COLA.
- 2. Substantially equal periodic payments must be made not less frequently than annually and for the life expectancy of the employee or the joint life expectancies of the employee and a designated beneficiary.
- 3. Qualified charitable distributions (QCD) may be made from an IRA (other than an active SEP or SIMPLE IRA), and excluded from income, after the IRA owner has reached age 70½, if directly transferred to a qualifying charitable organization, up to a maximum of $100,000. The amount of a QCD that is exempt from reporting will be offset by the total amount of IRA contributions made post age 70½. Please consult with your tax or legal advisor for more information on these distributions.
- 4. Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005. Please consult with legal counsel to determine how this law applies to your particular situation.
- 5. Distributions from a retirement account before you reach age 59½, (or distributions from a qualified plan, before you reach age 55 and are separated from service) may be subject to a 10% early withdrawal penalty under Internal Revenue Code Section 72(t) in addition to any applicable income taxes on the distributions.
- 6. Internal Revenue Code Section 72(t) provides several exceptions to the 10% penalty on early distributions; however, this piece focuses specifically on substantially equal periodic payments. Not all employer-sponsored retirement plans allow substantially equal periodic payments. Your client should check their plan's documents to confirm if these distributions are permissible and to determine the terms and conditions for such distributions. Remember, if your client does take these distributions, regular income taxes will apply.
