IMPORTANT: IRA Charitable Rollover checks sent directly from the custodian must be dated and postmarked on or before Dec. 31, 2021.

IRA Rollover Checkbooks enable individuals to facilitate their own gifts without requiring the custodian to process each check request. In the case of IRA Rollover Checkbooks, the year in which the check is deposited will dictate the year in which the gifted portion of your Required Minimum Distribution is applied and tax benefits are received.
