Retirement accounts such as 401(k)s and IRAs have become popular vehicles for retirement savings and building wealth. It is inevitable that you or your client will inherit one. Unlike most other inherited assets, retirement accounts have tax consequences. This presentation will help you understand the tax consequences and identify what you need to know about the deceased account owner, the beneficiary, and the type of plan/account to properly determine when distributions must occur. You will also learn how to properly calculate the required minimum distributions and what happens if you miss a required distribution and how to correct.

    Retirement Accounts
  • Distributions to Eligible Designate Beneficiaries
  • Distributions to Ineligible Beneficiaries
  • Inheriting Plan Assets Other Than Traditional
    Investments and Accounts
  • Impact of Missing Required Distribution
