I just received a check from "Strong Settlement" - the "statement to eligible investors" is here:

The check is made out to "John Foo1bar IRA".

I have been planning to convert my IRA (traditional, all non-deduc. contributions) into a Roth this year.

From what I can tell I should deposit this directly into my IRA now, then convert, and from a tax perspective, I treat it as if this money was just part of the account's normal growth. (ie - it's not treated as a pre-tax or a post-tax contribution when I start doing the conversion calculations.)

Anyone else seen this before? Have anything to point out that I'm missing/misunderstanding?
