*Eligible Rollover Distribution (ERD) refers to those distributions from Qualified Plans that are eligible to move between various fiduciary plan types (for example - 403(b), 401(k)) without tax consequences. These Qualified Plan types are referred to in Internal Revenue Code (IRC) 401(a) and include Profit Sharing, 401(k), Money Purchase Pension, Defined-Benefit, and ESOP. An ERD may also be from an IRC 403(b) (7) plan, which is for employees of non-profit institutions and public schools.

If an election is made to take an ERD from these plans in cash or "in kind" there is a mandatory 20% federal withholding. When this occurs, various states require withholding as indicated.
