Inheriting an IRA comes with its own tax nuances not only for individual beneficiaries but also for estates or trusts claiming an IRA after the death of the owner. When clients make mistakes or circumstances change, practitioners can help their clients by identifying ways to administer or transfer inherited retirement accounts after the death of the original owner. In this course we will review the inherited retirement account rules as modified by the Secure Act and identify methods of administering or transferring retirement accounts after death to minimize income tax and meet client goals. 

Session Highlights: 

  • Describe the distribution options for inherited retirement accounts for individual beneficiaries, estates, and trusts
  • Understand the methods for administering a retirement account as an asset of a trust
  • Identify opportunities to distribute income to charitable beneficiaries
  • Analyze an estate or trust’s ability to distribute a retirement account to charitable and individual beneficiaries 
  • Recommend ideal transfer methods for retirement accounts to minimize administration complexity and income taxes
