there will be two step verification.1. If you contributed into the traditional IRA in 2002 and did not deduct that contribution - you woudl need to file form 8606 with that tax return reporting nondeductible IRA contribution. If that form was not filed - you woudl need to amend that tax return and add the form.
2. As you received distribution in 2016 - most likely the administrator will report total amount of distribution as taxable on form 1099R.You woudl need to determine a nontaxable portion and report the total distribution on form 1040 line 15a, and taxable portion on line 15b.
