A prison guard certainly seems to qualify as a "law enforcement officer" to qualify for that exclusion.

Just make sure the other qualifications are met, including that "distribution must be made directly from the plan to the insurance provider".

I believe it is on the 1099R worksheet

Sorry, but I can’t answer any questions without my attorney being present.
