eligible rollover distribution

(4) Eligible rollover distribution For purposes of this subsection, the term “eligible rollover distribution” means any distribution to an employee of all or any portion of the balance to the credit of the employee in a qualified trust; except that such term shall not include— (A) any distribution which is one of a series of substantially equal periodic payments (not less frequently than annually) made— (i) for the life (or life expectancy) of the employee or the joint lives (or joint life expectancies) of the employee and the employee’s designated beneficiary, or (ii) for a specified period of 10 years or more, (B) any distribution to the extent such distribution is required under section 401(a)(9), and (C) any distribution which is made upon hardship of the employee. If all or any portion of a distribution during 2020 is treated as an eligible rollover distribution but would not be so treated if the minimum distribution requirements under section 401(a)(9) had applied during 2020, such distribution shall not be treated as an eligible rollover distribution for purposes of section 401(a)(31) or 3405(c) or subsection (f) of this section.
