When is a 5498 issued?
The IRS deadline for issuing Form 5498 is May 31. The filing deadline takes into account the fact that contributions to IRAs can be applied towards the prior tax year, provided that the contribution is made by the filing deadline (without extensions) for that year’s income tax returns, generally April 15 of the following year, however the April 15 deadline may be extended in the event of a weekend or holiday

Why did I not receive a 5498?
You will not receive a 5498 form if you did not make any contributions or rollovers to your IRA for the tax year, if there were no other reportable transactions or information, if you do not have an IRA, or if we have an incorrect mailing address on file for your annuity contract.
