[TD 9665]
RIN 1545-BG12


Tax Treatment of Qualified Retirement Plan Payment of Accident or 
Health Insurance Premiums; Correction

AGENCY: Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Treasury.

ACTION: Correcting amendment.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document contains corrections to final regulations (TD 
9665) that were published in the Federal Register on Monday, May 12, 
2014 (79 FR 26838) clarifying the rules regarding the tax treatment of 
payments by qualified retirement plans for accident or health 
insurance. The final regulations set forth the general rule under 
section 402(a) that amounts held in a qualified plan that are used to 
pay accident or health insurance premiums are taxable distributions 
unless described in certain statutory exemptions. The final regulations 
do not extend this result to arrangements under which amounts are used 
to pay premiums for disability insurance that replaces retirement plan 
contributions in the event of a participant's disability. These 
regulations affect sponsors, administrators, participants, and 
beneficiaries of qualified retirement plans.

DATES: This correction is effective on July 7, 2014, and is applicable 
May 12, 2014.
