If an individual took a 401(k) coronavirus-related distribution withdrawal and didn’t use all or part of the money, may the funds be deposited to his/her IRA instead of back into the 401(k)? What are the rules?

Yes, individuals may repay coronavirus-related distribution over three years beginning with the day funds are received. Repayments may be made to an eligible retirement plan or IRA. Coronavirus-related distribution repayments made within the three-year period will be treated as having satisfied the general 60-day rollover requirement.
