IRA’s – one of the most sophisticated deposit products that financial institutions offer. Simultaneously navigating the requirements of federal law while answering customer questions requires well trained employees with good resources at their fingertips. That’s what this program offers.

This seminar covers all the recent developments in the context of daily IRA operations and includes analysis of:

• Traditional IRAs
• Roth IRAs
• Eligibility requirements
• Contribution limits and deductibility
• Participant distributions – voluntary and mandatory
• Beneficiary distributions – voluntary and mandatory
• Penalties and penalty waivers
• Information reporting from the 5498 to the 1099R
• Changes affecting IRA Administration in the upcoming year

Designed for more experienced personnel, the program also focuses on frequently asked questions regarding:

• Rollovers and transfers after age 70 ½
• Establishing beneficiary accounts and paying out to beneficiaries
• Transferring a beneficiary IRA to another institution
• Transfers from qualified retirement plans

This seminar does NOT cover:

• SEPs,

The seminar is designed for experienced IRA personnel who are familiar with IRA eligibility and the various types of IRAs. The person who is newly responsible for IRAs routinely finds the day a challenge, but is able to keep up.
