Methods to move your money

Rollover

A rollover is the movement of assets between two different retirement plans. You can elect a rollover if you:

yy Are no longer employed with the employer administering this plan.

yy Are retired.

yy Meet the age requirements for an in- service withdrawal. (Check with your plan administrator/employer for age restrictions.)

yy Are totally and permanently disabled.

yy Are an alternate payee due to a Qualified Domestic Relations Order.

For example: You could move assets from an existing retirement account that is from a former employer to your retirement account with your current employer or to an IRA.

Refer to the Special Tax Notice for more information about what types of transactions are eligible for rollover.

Please note: If you are required to take a minimum distribution for this calendar year, your annual RMD must be satisfied before a rollover can be processed. If you elect a rollover, we will automatically distribute any outstanding RMD, withhold taxes, and mail a check to your address on record. If you would like more options for RMD withdrawal, please complete the RMD form, available on the Lincoln web site, before electing a rollover.

Contract exchange

A contract exchange is only available to 403(b) plans. It is a tax-free transfer of one 403(b) account to another 403(b) account within the same 403(b) retirement plan. No reason for distribution is necessary, but an exchange must be permitted by the plan.

(A contract exchange may not be available in your plan. Please contact your plan administrator/employer to see if

this option is available.)

For example: Your employer offers multiple retirement plan providers and you may transfer assets from one 403(b) provider to another.

Plan-to-plan transfer

A plan-to plan transfer is a transfer of assets from one retirement plan to another retirement plan. You can elect a plan-to-plan transfer if:

yy The transfer is between the same plan type (such as 403(b) plan to 403(b) plan).

yy Both plans allow for the transfer.

Please note: This type of transfer is usually used when you are not eligible for a distribution/rollover but wish to consolidate your retirement assets within a single plan.

For example:

You are working for an employer that is part of a group of employers. Each employer sponsors their own 403(b) plan. (IE: a group of hospitals, each has their own retirement plan) You transfer employment from one employer to another employer within this group.

(IE: move from one hospital to another within the same organization) You are not eligible for a distribution/ rollover, but you would like all of your retirement assets in one plan. If both employers’ plans permit the transfer, this would allow you to consolidate your retirement assets.

(A plan-to-plan transfer may not be available to your plan. Please contact your plan administrator/employer to see if

this option is available.)

Permissive service credit transfer

A permissive service credit transfer is a type of plan-to-plan transfer used to purchase additional service in a government defined benefit plan.

You may be eligible to transfer money from your current retirement plan to a government defined benefit plan. This money would be used to purchase additional service or benefits under that plan. No reason for distribution is necessary.

(Transfer to purchase service credits may not be available to your plan. Please contact your plan administrator/employer to see if this option is available.)

Special tax notice regarding plan payment from non-Roth and designated Roth accounts

Your rollover options

You are receiving this notice because all or a portion of a payment you are receiving from an employer-sponsored retirement plan (“Plan”) may be eligible to be rolled over to an IRA, an employer plan, or Roth IRA. This notice is intended to help you decide whether to do such a rollover.

This notice describes the rollover rules that apply to payments that are from a “designated Roth account” (an account for after-tax, Roth elective deferral contributions) and payments from a “non-Roth account” (an account for pre-tax elective deferral contributions). If you are only receiving a payment from one of these types of accounts, you need only read the sections of this notice that apply to that type of account. If you are receiving payments from both types of accounts, you should read the entire notice. In addition, the Plan administrator or payor will tell you the amount that is being paid from each account if you are receiving payments from both types of accounts.

Rules that apply to most payments from a plan are described in the “General Information About Rollovers” section. Special rules that only apply in certain circumstances are described in the “Special Rules and Options” section.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT

ROLLOVERS

How can a rollover affect my taxes?

Non-Roth account

You will be taxed on a payment from a non-Roth account under the Plan if you do not roll it over. If you are under age 59½ and do not do a rollover, you will also have to pay a 10% additional income tax on early distributions (unless an exception applies). However, if you do a rollover, you will not have to pay tax until you receive payments later and the 10% additional income tax will not apply if those payments are made after you are age 59 ½ (or if an exception applies).

Designated Roth account

After-tax contributions included in a payment from a designated Roth account are not taxed, but earnings might be taxed. The tax treatment of earnings included in the payment depends on whether the payment is a qualified distribution. If a payment is only part of your designated Roth account, the payment will include an allocable portion of the earnings in your designated Roth account.

If the payment from the Plan is not a qualified distribution and you do not do a rollover to a Roth IRA or a designated Roth account in an employer plan, you will be taxed on the earnings in the payment. If you are under age 59½, a 10% additional income tax on the early distributions will also apply to the earnings (unless an exception applies). However, if you do a rollover, you will not have to pay taxes currently on the earnings and you will not have to pay taxes later on payments that are qualified distributions.

If the payment from the Plan is a qualified distribution, you will not be taxed on any part of the payment even if you do not do a rollover. If you do a rollover, you will not be taxed on the amount you roll over and any earnings on the amount you roll over will not be taxed if paid later in a qualified distribution.

A qualified distribution from a designated Roth account in the Plan is a payment made after you are age 59½ (or after your death or disability) and after you have had a designated Roth account in the Plan for at least 5 years. In applying the 5-year rule, you count from January 1 of the year your first contribution was made to the designated Roth account. However, if you did a direct rollover to a designated Roth account in the Plan from a designated Roth account in another employer plan, your participation will count from January 1 of the year your first contribution was made to the designated Roth account in the Plan or, if earlier, to the designated Roth account in the other employer plan.

What types of retirement accounts and plans may accept my rollover?

Non-Roth account

You may roll over the payment to either an IRA (an individual retirement account or individual retirement annuity) or an employer plan (a tax- qualified plan, section 403(b) plan, or governmental section 457(b) plan) that will accept the rollover. The rules of the IRA or employer plan that holds the rollover will determine your investment options, fees, and rights to payment from the IRA or employer plan (for example, no spousal consent rules apply to IRAs and IRAs may not provide loans). Further, the amount rolled over will become subject to the tax rules that apply to the IRA or employer plan.

Designated Roth account

You may roll over the payment from a designated Roth account to either a Roth IRA (a Roth individual retirement account or Roth individual retirement annuity) or a designated Roth account in an employer plan (a tax-qualified plan, section 403(b) plan or governmental 457(b) plan) that will accept the rollover. The rules of the Roth IRA or employer plan that holds the rollover will determine your investment options, fees, and rights to payment from the Roth IRA or employer plan (for example, no spousal consent rules apply to Roth IRAs and Roth IRAs may not provide loans). Further, the amount rolled over will become subject to the tax rules that apply to the Roth IRA or the designated Roth account in the employer plan. In general, these tax rules are similar to those described elsewhere in this notice, but differences include:

yy If you do a rollover to a Roth IRA, all of your Roth IRAs will be considered for purposes of determining whether you have satisfied the 5-year rule (counting from January 1 of the year for which your first contribution was made to any of your Roth IRAs). yy If you do a rollover to a Roth IRA, you will not be required to take a distribution from the Roth IRA during your lifetime and you must keep track of the aggregate amount of the after-tax contributions in all of your Roth IRAs (in order to determine your taxable income

for later Roth IRA payments that are not qualified distributions). yy Eligible rollover distributions from a Roth IRA can only be rolled

over to another Roth IRA.

How do I do a rollover?

There are two ways to do a rollover. You can either do a direct rollover or a 60-day rollover.

Non-Roth account

If you do a direct rollover, the Plan will make the payment directly to your IRA or an employer plan. You should contact the IRA sponsor or

the administrator of the employer plan for information on how to do a direct rollover.

If you do not do a direct rollover, you may still do a rollover by making a deposit into an IRA or eligible employer plan that will accept it. Generally, you will have 60 days after you receive the payment to make the deposit. If you do not do a direct rollover, the Plan is required to withhold 20% of the payment for federal income taxes (up to the amount of cash and property received other than employer stock). This means that, in order to roll over the entire payment in a 60-day rollover, you must use other funds to make up for the 20% withheld. If you do not roll over the entire amount of the payment, the portion not rolled over will be taxed and will be subject to the 10% additional income tax on early distributions if you are under age 59½ (unless an exception applies).

yy Amounts treated as distributed because of a prohibited allocation of S corporation stock under an ESOP (also, there will generally be adverse tax consequences if you roll over a distribution of S corporation stock to an IRA)

The Plan administrator or the payor can tell you what portion of a payment is eligible for rollover.

Designated Roth account

If you do a direct rollover, the Plan will make the payment directly to your Roth IRA or designated Roth account in an employer plan. You should contact the Roth IRA sponsor or the administrator of the employer plan for information on how to do a direct rollover.

If you do not do a direct rollover, you may still do a rollover by making a deposit (generally within 60 days) into a Roth IRA, whether the payment is a qualified or nonqualified distribution. In addition, you can do a rollover by making a deposit within 60 days into a designated Roth account in an employer plan if the payment is a nonqualified distribution and the rollover does not exceed the amount of the earnings in the payment. You cannot do a 60-day rollover to an employer plan of any part of a qualified distribution. If you receive a distribution that is a nonqualified distribution and you do not roll over an amount at least equal to the earnings allocable to the distribution, you will be taxed on the amount of those earnings not rolled over, including the 10% additional income tax on early distributions if you are under age 59½ (unless an exception applies).

If you do a direct rollover of only a portion of the amount paid from the Plan and a portion is paid to you at the same time, the portion directly rolled over consists first of earnings.

If you do not do a direct rollover and the payment is not a qualified distribution, the Plan is required to withhold 20% of the earnings for federal income taxes (up to the amount of cash and property received other than employer stock). This means that, in order to roll over the entire payment in a 60-day rollover to a Roth IRA, you must use other funds to make up for the 20% withheld.

How much may I roll over?

The following rules are the same for both non-Roth and designated Roth accounts.

If you wish to do a rollover, you may roll over all or part of the amount eligible for rollover. Any payment from the Plan is eligible for rollover, except:

yy Certain payments spread over a period of at least 10 years or over your life or life expectancy (or the lives or joint life expectancy of you and your beneficiary)

yy Required minimum distributions after age 70½ (or after death) yy Hardship distributions

yy ESOP dividends

If I don’t do a rollover, will I have to pay the 10% additional income tax on early distributions?

Non-Roth account

If you are under age 59½, you will have to pay the 10% additional income tax on early distributions for any payment from the Plan (including amounts withheld for income tax) that you do not roll over, unless one of the exceptions listed below applies. This tax applies to the part of the distribution that you must include in income and is in addition to the regular income tax on the payment not rolled over.

Designated Roth account

If the payment is not a qualified distribution and you are under age 59½, you will have to pay the 10% additional income tax on early distributions with respect to the earnings allocated to the payment that you do not roll over (including amounts withheld for income tax), unless one of the exceptions listed below applies. This tax is in addition to the regular income tax on the earnings not rolled over.

Both Non-Roth accounts and designated Roth accounts

The 10% additional income tax does not apply to the following payments from the Plan:

yy Payments made after you separate from service if you will be at least age 55 in the year of the separation

yy Payments that start after you separate from service if paid at least annually in equal or close to equal amounts over your life or life expectancy (or the lives or joint life expectancy of you and your beneficiary)

yy Payments from a governmental retirement plan made after you separate from service if you are a qualified public safety employee and you will be at least age 50 in the year of the separation. The term “qualified public safety employee” means public safety employees of a state, political subdivision of a state; and specified federal law enforcement officers, federal customs and border protection officers, federal firefighters and air traffic controllers

yy Payments made due to disability yy Payments after your death

yy Payments of ESOP dividends

yy Corrective distributions of contributions that exceed tax law limitations

yy Cost of life insurance paid by the Plan

yy Payments made directly to the government to satisfy a federal tax levy
