I also, have another question regarding HSA.  My employer went to a HD insurance plan and mandated that all employees had to open an HSA Account, only to later rescind that if an employee had signed up for Medicare, which I had when I became eligible.  I contributed $800 to the HSA account and later closed it and was refunded my payroll deposit of $800.  Is this going to result in a penalty.

No, you took the money out in a timely basis.

If you are 70 1/2 it will ask you if it is the RMD.  Say yes.  Anything your pension pays you is considered to be the  RMD.

Neither is an RMD for 2018.

RMDs are required once you reach age 70 1/2. The distribution is not considered one until then.

RMD stands for Required Minimum Distribution. It's the minimum amount of money you're required to take out of your retirement plan once you turn 70 1/2.

RMD rules apply to all employer-sponsored retirement plans such as pensions, profit-sharing, 401(k), 403(b), and 457(b) plans, as well as Traditional IRAs and IRA-based plans such as SEPs, SARSEPs, and SIMPLE IRAs. However, RMDs are not required for Roth IRAs while the owner is still alive.

Your 1099-R issuer is required to follow RMD rules and regulations, so if you received a distribution and you're at least 70 1/2 years young, you can be almost certain you received an RMD. Check with your plan administrator if you're still not sure.
