Creating, Implementing and Monitoring the Retirement Plan
In this four-part narrated PowerPoint presentation, Tom Tillery will discuss contributions to, and distributions from, various types of retirement plans, enabling you to better review your client's existing estate plan or create an estate plan, which may be even more critical than the assets themselves.

The SECURE Act is the first major legislation to revamp retirement plans in over a decade. The provisions and planning strategies to help your clients avoid unintended tax consequences on their estate and retirement plans have been implemented into this learning program.
Are you ready to help your clients set realistic expectations and goals? In this narrated PowerPoint video, Tom Tillery will discuss contributions to, and distributions from, various types of retirement plans.
Contributions to most retirement plans are made on a pre-tax or tax-deductible basis. Income tax benefits are available to both employers and employees; and, for most retirement plans, the contributions grow on an income tax-deferred basis.
Clients will face several challenges throughout the retirement years: providing care for elderly parents, children moving back home, and health issues. And, there are retirees who may have outlived, or overspent, their nest egg.
This course will explore the risk-management tools and strategies to mitigate or eliminate these risks (or both). Financial advisers and clients alike, often incorrectly perceive that deployment of strategies and recommendations is the first step in the implementation phase.
In the final part of this course, you will learn that the first step should be a review of the client's existing estate plan, or the creation of an estate plan. A current estate plan and the appropriate ownership of assets that are set aside for financial independence is just as, and may be even more, critical than the assets themselves.
Note: This course has been updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("Tax Reform").
