We have decided to take lump sum from 2 of DH's pensions and roll them over to a traditional IRA. He's talking about getting the check and depositing it himself, but I am remembering something in the back of my head about that only being possible once a year these days, and there are two different pensions from two different companies he will do this for. He already has the IRA set up, and I am encouraging him to do a direct rollover. Is there any reason why he would have to do so? Am I remembering incorrectly? Would not be surprising as this is just a shadow of a memory.
