Enhancing and Improving your Planning for IRA's and Retirement Plans

Are you aware of the risks and strategies for naming beneficiaries and planning for IRAs and Qualified Retirement Plans after the SECURE Act? In 2020, there was over $30 trillion in IRAs and Qualified Retirement Plan assets.  Join us as we learn from Attorney Brad Dewan about strategies and planning considerations to address the significant income tax consequences that designated beneficiaries will be facing.

Covered will be such strategies as:

  • Roth IRA conversions,
  • life insurance,
  • charitable remainder trusts and
  • BDOTs. 

There will be an overview and discussion of:

  • 10 year rule for designated beneficiaries
  • The 5 categories of “eligible designated beneficiaries” who can still stretch out the payments from inherited IRAs
  • The two rules that still apply when there is no “designated beneficiary”
  • Community property and transmutation issues for 2nd marriages
  • Creditor protection for IRAs under federal bankruptcy and California law
  • Asset protection
  • Creditor protection
  • Divorce protection strategies for inherited IRAs using IRA Beneficiary Trusts
  • How to use IRA funds to purchase real estate and other “alternative investments”
  • Self-directed IRA custodians
  • Application of the prohibited transaction rules and more
