Is there an age limit on qualifying for a covid-related distribution from a traditional IRA? I haven't seen one. I'm well over 59 1/2 years old.

If I take a distribution, intending it to be a covid-related distribution and intending to pay it back within three years, are there any hoops I need to jump through now? I assume the IRS will make the determination when i go to pay it back, as to whether they will allow it to be classified as a covid-related distribution.

For the past years, I've grossed $5K to $10K as a sports official I'm recognized as an independent contractor, not an employee. As there have been no games this year due to covid, I'm assuming I'm eligible to take a covid-related distribution.
