Understanding Your 1099-R Form

1099-R Forms for 2016 Will Be Mailed by January 31, 2017.

Your 1099-R Form will include:

  • the total gross distribution,
  • the total taxable amount,
  • and the total tax withheld,

of your FPPA retirement benefit income.

Before Your Form Arrives
You may view a "data only" version of your 1099-R information on the Member Account Portal (MAP). The "data only" version is NOT a copy you can use for IRS tax filing purposes. It is only a snap-shot of the data you will see on the actual 1099-R Form we will mail to you.

If you have not registered for MAP - it's easy to get started. Just contact an FPPA Retiree Payroll Representative.

Tax Questions? Contact your Tax Advisor.

The 1099-R Form above is a sample of what will be mailed to you reporting your FPPA retirement benefit income to the IRS. When your form arrives you will need to use the form to complete your income tax return. We have provided colored boxes above to match the short summaries below. Complete information about each box may be found on the back of the form when it arrives in the mail.

Gross distribution - The total amount paid to you by FPPA for the calendar year.

Taxable amount - The portion of your total benefit received during the calendar year that should be considered taxable income.

Federal income tax withheld - The total amount of federal income tax withheld during the calendar year. This box may or may not have a value depending on your withholding election.
