Additional information regarding qualified longevity annuity contract (QLAC) funding guidelines: Pre-tax assets include Traditional, SEP, and SIMPLE IRAs. QLACs cannot be purchased with Roth or Inherited IRA dollars; value of such IRAs cannot be included in determining 25% premium limit. If the QLAC Funding Source is a Traditional IRA, the 25% limit is calculated by combining the total value of all Traditional IRAs as of December 31st of the previous year. If the QLAC Funding source is an Employer sponsored qualified plan (401k, 403b and governmental 457b), the 25% limit is calculated on an individual plan basis based on the plan’s account value on the previous day’s market close. If you previously purchased a QLAC, the calculation of your 25% limit is more complicated. Please contact an attorney or tax professional for additional details.
