5.09.156 Rollovers From the Plan

(Added by Ordinance No. 182168, effective October 3, 2008.)

A.  Notwithstanding any provision of the Plan to the contrary, a Participant who is entitled to a distribution under the Plan shall be permitted to elect to have any Eligible Rollover Distribution (as defined in IRC Section 402(c)(4)) paid directly to an Eligible Retirement Plan (as defined in Subsection 5.09.155 B.) specified by the Participant.  The Participant shall, in the time and manner prescribed by the Employer, specify the amount to be rolled over and the Eligible Retirement Plan to receive such rollover.  Any portion of a distribution which is not rolled over shall be distributed to the Participant.

B.  The election described in Subsection A. also applies to the surviving spouse who is the designated Beneficiary of the Participant or a spouse or former spouse who is the Alternate Payee, provided that such spouse, former spouse or Alternate Payee directs the transfer of an Eligible Rollover Distribution (as defined in Subsection 5.09.155 B.) in which such spouse, former spouse or Alternate Payee is a participant.  Effective for distributions made on or after May 16, 2008, a non-spouse beneficiary is permitted to make a direct rollover of death benefits to an inherited IRA.
