Item Description Back to top
The economic boom of the 1990`s created unprecedented personal wealth in America -- nearly $33 trillion. For many individuals, retirement benefits represent a significant portion of their wealth. When considering how to plan for retirement assets there are important tax considerations and non-tax considerations. Our instructor discusses some of these issues, including minimum distribution rules; income tax treatment of distributed benefits; naming a trust as beneficiary; federal penalty tax in Section 4974(a); federal spousal rights in Qualified Retirement Plans; charitable gifting of retirement benefits; and tools for protecting benefits from creditors, such as conduit trusts and accumulation trusts. 

This course was recorded in March 2011 at PBI`s seminar on Advanced Issues in Estate Planning. This comprehensive, in-depth program is a must attend for any experienced estate planner. Other sessions from the program are available at PBI`s Online Campus.
