Additional Helpful Information

  • The early withdrawal penalty on an IRA CD is not rollover eligible. For instance, if the CD balance is $1,000, and the early withdraw penalty is $50, only $950 is rollover eligible.
  • The early withdrawal penalty is not treated as a distribution.  Therefore it is not reported on IRS Form 1099-R.
