A rollover is a way to move money or property from a Medical Savings Account (MSA) to a Medical Savings Account. The Internal Revenue Code (IRC) limits how many rollovers may be taken, how quickly rollovers must be completed, and how the Trustee or Custodian must report the transaction. By properly completing this form you are certifying to the Trustee or Custodian that you have satisfied the rules and conditions applicable to your rollover and that you are making an irrevocable election to treat the transaction as a rollover.


  1. Timelines
    The funds you receive from an MSA must be deposited into an MSA within 60 days after you receive them. When counting the 60 days, include weekends and holidays. There are generally no exceptions to the 60-day rule and the IRS cannot grant extensions. Receipt generally means the day you actually have the funds in hand. For example, the 60 days would begin on the day you pick up the check from the Trustee or Custodian or you receive the check in the mail.

  2. Twelve-Month Restriction
    You are entitled to one distribution per year per MSA which may be rolled over. Twelve (12) months must pass after receipt of one distribution which you rollover before you may take another distribution from the same MSA to rollover. The focus is on distributions out of an MSA. An MSA is created by executing a plan agreement, not by depositing a contribution into a separate investment with an existing MSA.

You are entitled to rollover the same assets only once in a twelve (12) month period. Twelve (12) months must elapse between the time you receive a distribution of the assets to be rolled over and the time you receive another distribution of those same assets for rollover purposes.

For Internal Use Only: Accepting MSA Custodian:
Our organization agrees to serve as the new Custodian for the account of the above named individual, and as Custodian, we agree to accept the assets being transferred.
