Estate Planning for IRAs Payable to Trusts After the Secure Act – Welcome to an “Alice in Wonderland World”

Watch Now!
Recording and Slides are Available Here

This is a critical post-Secure Act class for lawyers drafting trusts to receive IRAs at death and the CPAs and Financial advisors that work with those lawyers. 

Unfortunately, not enough attention is paid to the tax aspects of IRA planning and the opportunities to preserve retirement funds after death. Nevertheless, with a solid understanding of the post-Secure Act IRA provisions, one will be able to plan around the key issues and identify opportunities. The ten-year rule under 401(a)(9)(H) was layered over the existing statute and underlying 401(a)(9) regulations. Most IRAs will be subject to the ten-year rule, but traps and exceptions continue to exist in the expanded labyrinth of tax and property law surrounding IRA-Trusts.

In this exclusive LISI Webinar, which includes flowcharts, tables and spreadsheets, Bob Keebler  will review these critical issues:

  • The Ten-Year Payout Rule and the Five Statutory Exceptions under the Secure Act

  • The Secure Act’s Conduit Trust Disaster and what the Drafting Attorney must know
