QBAD Distribution Limits When One Spouse Doesn’t Participate in a Retirement Plan
“Our 403(b) plan allows for qualified birth or adoption (QBAD) distributions consistent with the SECURE Act’s amendments to Internal Revenue Code section 72(t)(2). Recently, we had a plan participant request a QBAD for $10,000 related to the adoption of a child, but the plan participant’s spouse is NOT a participant in our 403(b) plan. We realize that under the SECURE Act, each spouse, individually, is eligible for a $5,000 QBAD from an eligible retirement plan, but can the plan participant take a single $10,000 QBAD from our 403(b) plan to cover both spouses? The spouse does not have a retirement plan or IRA from which to take a QBAD, which is why the participant is requesting the $10,000 distribution.”
