Important Information About IRA-to-IRA Rollovers

Changes for IRA-to-IRA Rollovers (including Traditional, SEP, SIMPLE and Roth), were effective January 1, 2015, only one IRA distribution may be rolled over in an IRA-to-IRA rollover transaction within any 12-month period - regardless of the number and types of IRAs (i.e. Traditional, SEP, SIMPLE and Roth) that an IRA account owner holds.

Note: These types of rollovers must still be completed with 60-days of receipt. Additionally, these changes do not apply to rollovers to (or from) qualified plans; trustee-to-trustee transfers between IRAs; or conversions to Roth IRAs.

Amundi Pioneer Roth IRA

Amundi Pioneer Roth IRA contributions are not tax-deductible, but earnings grow tax-deferred and your client can withdraw them entirely tax-free if:

  • Your client's account has been open for at least five years, and
  • Your client is at least age 59½, disabled, or uses up to $10,000 to buy a first home.

Even before your clients meet the conditions for withdrawing tax-free earnings¹, they can always withdraw an amount equal to their contributions without paying any tax — regardless of their age or how long their account has been open. That means they can take money out at any time and pay no tax until they have taken out all of their original contributions.

Traditional IRA

Your clients' contributions to a Traditional IRA may be tax-deductible, depending on their income and whether they participate in a retirement plan at work. Use our [[Guide to Traditional IRA Deductions]] to check the IRA deductibility options for your client.

If your clients are eligible for a tax deduction, their current-year tax bill could shrink every time they invest. For example, if they are in a 28% tax bracket and make a $5,500 deductible contribution to a Traditional IRA, they could save $1,540 on their taxes that year.

Regardless, all earnings in a Traditional IRA grow tax-deferred. Investors don't pay taxes until they withdraw their money, which usually is during retirement when they may be in a lower tax bracket.
