IRA One-Rollover-Per-Year Rule Changes Effective January 1, 2015

The IRS has announced that the longstanding interpretation of the one-rollover-per-year rule will be changing effective January 1, 2015. Historically, the understanding has been that this rule applies to each IRA an individual owns. However, beginning “as early as January 1, 2015”, according to the IRS website announcement, “you can make only one rollover from an IRA to another (or the same) IRA in any 12 month period, regardless of the number of IRAs you own”. For more details, see the IRS announcement on their website: http://www.irs.gov/Retirement-Plans/IRA-One-Rollover-Per-Year-Rule.

Android “Fake ID” flaw announced by Google

On July 29, 2014, Google announced that Android® devices could be left open to attack from malicious apps that appear to come from legitimate developers, due to a flaw in Google’s mobile software. The flaw has been named “Fake ID” by security company Bluebox Labs, which discovered it.

Fake ID has been resident in Android® from version 2.1 to 4.4. Apparently, Google issued a fix in April as part of the latest update, Android® 4.4, also known as KitKat 4.4. If you have not upgraded your device to this version of their operating system, your mobile device could still be at risk.  You can easily verify your software version by going to Settings>About Phone and looking for the Android software version installed.

We make no recommendation of any third party security products. However, you may wish to review and determine if such services are appropriate for your individual needs.

We recommend that you upgrade all of your Android® device operating systems to version 4.4 or higher. We also recommend that all of our mobile banking clients update their operating systems as soon as possible after being prompted by the device to ensure a safe and secure mobile banking experience.

Thank you!

Olmsted National Bank
