You have a Big Decision when You leave the DROP – What to do with Your Lump Sum ?
Your Lump-Sum DROP money is paid in one of three ways :
- As a lump-sum payment, with mandatory 20% withheld for Federal Income Taxes. This entire check is 100% taxable as Ordinary Income. Ouch !
- As a direct 100% rollover to your own personal “ Self-Directed IRA Rollover “ investment account. There are no taxes due on this Rollover.
- Or as a combination: a partial lump-sum payment to you, with 20% withheld for Income Taxes, and the remainder rolled over non-taxable to your new IRA.
What is a “Self-Directed IRA”?
- Do you know how to complete all of your DROP Exit paperwork, the process, and the Deadlines?
- Fraser can help you complete your DROP Termination paperwork, the right way.
- Fraser can also help you establish your new Self-Directed IRA Rollover account, the right way.
