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 four-part narrated PowerPoint presentation, Tom Tillery will examine professional environment and non-financial factors, financial decisions, taxation and income tax planning and integration with other areas of PFP.

Society has been called upon to care for the widow, the orphan, and the chronically ill. In this narrated PowerPoint presentation, Tom Tillery discusses the role of the personal financial planner with respect to this demographic—to act as the fulcrum, multiplying, focusing and coordinating the efforts of the myriad advisers providing services to the elderly, chronically ill and those with special needs.

This course will address the professional environment within which the personal financial planner provides services, and financial and non-financial factors including types of care, communication with cognitively or physically impaired clients, family dynamics and life planning.

To apply personal financial planning resources effectively, the personal financial planner must become familiar with the regulatory landscape, as well as the variety of other professional disciplines that have evolved to provide care to this group. The course also covers housing options, Medicare and Medicaid issues, as well as tax planning opportunities for the elderly, chronically ill and those with special needs.

Note: This course has been updated for the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act ("Tax Reform").

Moderator, Tom Tillery Thomas Neal Tillery, CFP®, AEP®, CLU®, ChFC®, CRPC®, LUTCF is Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer of Paraklete® Financial, Inc. Paraklete® provides integrated fee-for-service financial planning without asset management or product sales.
