IRAs - Traditional

IRA - Distribution to Surviving Spouse

As the surviving spouse who receives a lump-sum IRA distribution upon your spouse's death, you may avoid the tax on this distribution if you made a tax-free rollover into your own IRA account. Beneficiaries other than the surviving spouse may not use the tax-free rollover option.
