ESTATE PLANNING AND DRAFTING FOR RETIREMENT BENEFITS AFTER SECURE
SECURE has overturned the estate plans of many of our clients by replacing the life expectancy payout with the 10-year rule for most beneficiaries. Be sure to join Natalie Choate in her exclusive LISI Webinar as she provides you with what you need to know to advise new and existing clients about estate planning options for their retirement benefits. Here’s a short list of what Natalie will cover in this fast-moving, content packed webinar:
- How the 10-year rule works for trusts and individual beneficiaries
- How SECURE did what it did and what that means for the existing minimum distribution regulations: What survives and what was squashed
- Why you still need to understand conduit trusts and accumulation trusts...why “see-through trust” status still matters
- The five categories of “eligible designated beneficiary” and their four (!) sets of minimum distribution rules
- Why all five EDB categories are now worse off (a lot or a little) because of SECURE
- You don’t need to change your trusts...you may need to change the plan
- Hopes and schemes for delaying distributions to minors
- The curious special trust rules for disabled/chronically ill beneficiaries
- Selected drafting issues: Auto switches for EDB status? Toggle sitch to capture ghost rule? New accounting issues? Do we care about the “oldest trust beneficiary?”
