About Trustee to Trustee Transfers

Since both 401k Plans and IRAs are considered tax qualified by the IRS, certain regulations govern them if the funds are to keep their special tax deferred status.
When you remove your funds from a 401k plan the money must be placed into an account that is also tax qualified within 60 days (see Options below) or you can lose your tax benefit and be subject to IRS penalties.
A trustee to trustee transfer is when the assets from an account are transferred directly into your IRA Rollover account.
