Planning for Ownership and Inheritance of Qualified Retirement Plan and IRA Accounts and Benefits in Trust or Otherwise: Opportunities and Pitfalls
Alan Gassman, Christopher Denicolo, Kenneth Crotty and Brandon Ketron will present a discussion of planning for IRAs and other Qualified Plans, and will navigate through the various opportunities and pitfalls associated with planning for such assets. The program will focus on the taxation of retirement plan assets, how to structure beneficiary designations, and how to correctly draft trusts to receive benefits from retirement plans without triggering substantial adverse tax consequences. Practitioners will understand how to draft trusts to qualify as accumulation trusts or conduit trusts, and how to prepare proper language for beneficiary designation purposes to assure that retirement plan assets are payable in the manner intended by the client, and without triggering potentially catastrophic tax consequences. Estate planners, CPAs, tax professionals, and other professionals in the financial planning and client advisory industry will find this program helpful and beneficial to them and their clients.
In their 90 minute webinar, Alan, Chris, Ken and Brandon will address the following items, among other important issues in this area:
- Navigating the (often confusing) special rules applicable to Qualified Plan assets, including the required minimum distribution rules, the determination of a designated beneficiary, and the rules applicable to accumulation trusts and conduit trusts.
- Structuring beneficiary designation language to achieve clients’ objectives without running afoul of important tax rules, how to facilitate rollovers, and compliance with reporting requirements related to retirement plans.
- The importance of assuring that trusts that receive Qualified Plan benefits have appropriate language and contain necessary provisions to assure that the intended tax consequences occur.
- Selecting the proper beneficiary structure in light of tax and other considerations
