Save the Date – Ed Slott Talks Planning for the End of the Stretch IRA

AIP Marketing Alliance has scheduled an exclusive, one-hour session with Ed Slott, CPA, to discuss “Planning for the End of the Stretch IRA” where he will discuss critical issues that must be addressed to protect the largest IRAs and how life insurance and/or annuities provide a replacement plan.

This AIPMA limited-seating engagement with Ed Slott is scheduled for Thursday, February 25, from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST. Pre-registration is required, and you can sign up by clicking here.

Program Description

The SECURE Act has eliminated the stretch IRA for many beneficiaries, and clients will need solutions. Every IRA and company plan is affected, and the largest IRAs will need immediate attention.

Financial advisors have an opportunity to provide valuable planning strategies needed now by clients with retirement accounts. The advice you share now can impact the clients and their families for years, decades, and generations.

The new post-death payout rules for retirement accounts need to be addressed now because they are already in effect and could have a significant negative tax impact on the plans your clients have made for their retirement savings.

The good news is that there are alternative solutions that can put clients’ savings in a better position, providing larger inheritances, with more control and less tax. One of the better options is to use cash value life insurance in place of the traditional stretch IRA plan. This is the “The Life Insurance Replacement Plan.”

Annuities can also play an important role in retirement income planning.

Learn how to explain the issues and the solutions to clients so that they will act and create better plans with you for their families.
