Qualified retirement plans can create numerous estate planning problems.

Upon death, an IRA is subject to income tax, federal estate tax, possible state income tax, and possible state inheritance tax. A retirement plan trust can avoid tax problems while it protects beneficiaries.

In this one-hour session “IRA Beneficiary Designations and Surviving Spouse Strategies: Why Many IRA Owners Should Use a Retirement Plan Trust” you will learn:

  1. How a retirement plan trust avoids problems such as a beneficiary deciding to cash out early, or a beneficiary rolling over the client’s IRA into the beneficiary’s IRA;
  2. Problems with naming individuals as beneficiaries and how a retirement plan trust avoids them;
  3. Situations where a retirement plan trust should be used as the beneficiary of an IRA;
  4. How a retirement plan trust can protect your beneficiaries from: making bad financial decisions, going through guardianship for a minor child, and existing creditors of the beneficiary;
  5. Why a retirement plan trust is a better beneficiary than an ordinary living trust.
