If there are two plans and one is terminated, creating a distributable event, can loans in the terminated plan be rolled over?

By Denise Appleby AAA
A:

It depends.

If the loan is in good standing - the participant did not default on the loan and the loan meets other statutory requirements - then the loan is treated as an offset and is rollover eligible.

If the loan is in default, then the amount is not rollover eligible. Reasons for a loan being in default include the participant not making loan repayments on at least a quarterly basis.

A loan offset is reported as a regular distribution with Code 1 or Code 7 - depending on the participant's age - in

Box 7

of Form 1099-R.

A deemed distribution is reported with Code L in B

ox 7

of Form 1099-R.
