My ex-employer (Motorola) sold its d/b pension plan to Prudential. I\nam eligible for and am to receive a lump sum payout, which is to be\nrolled over to previous existing Rollover IRA @ Fidelity. We had been\ntold the payout would be effective Dec 19.\n\nI had planned on getting the check sometime next week, and taking it\nto local Fidelity office for deposit etc. (Check is being sent to me\nwith Fidelity's name and FBO info etc)\n\nI just checked my on-line account @ Motorola ( actually AON Hewitt),\nand it says "effective payout date" is now Dec 17, but "Payments are\nmailed on the 1st of month".\n\nIf in fact the check is dated in, and deposited in, Jan 2015, does\nthis distribution & rollover get reported for Tax Year 2015, instead\nof 2014 ? I assume yes.\n\nWhat if check is dated Dec 2014, but comes to late to get to Fidelity\nuntil early Jan 2015 ? Can the "60 days" overlap the end of the year OK ?\nAnd it is then reported for TY 2015.\n\nThanks for any help.
