Join this lively presentation regarding financial organizations’ responsibilities and considerations when handling IRA beneficiary designations and distributions. The SECURE Act, SECURE 2.0, and recent IRS guidance have made dealing with beneficiary rules and distributions more complex and challenging. 

In Part A of this two-part session, you will learn about many important traditional and Roth IRA issues, including beneficiary election deadlines and certain reporting obligations. There will also be an overview of IRA beneficiary distribution options for deaths occurring prior to January 1, 2020. Part B will explore beneficiary options for deaths occurring on or after January 1, 2020, in greater detail.


This timely webinar will assist everyone involved with IRA accounts, including service representatives, operations personnel, compliance staff, and administrative personnel. Management, trust department staff, and those who hold insurance or securities licenses will also benefit.
