On June 23, 2020, the IRS provided additional guidance permitting the repayment or rollover of RMDs already paid for 2020. Therefore, any RSA-1 member or beneficiary who has already received an RMD in 2020 now has the option to return their RMD to the RSA-1 Deferred Compensation Plan or rollover the RMD.
