“It’s good to learn from your mistakes. It’s better to learn from other people’s mistakes.”   – Warren Buffett

This course includes a deep dive of common real-life retirement plan mistakes and the lessons that can be learned from those mistakes.

  • Tips on advising clients on retirement issues arising upon divorce, such as the right way to split IRA funds, revocation-on-divorce laws and ERISA spousal rights.
  • How to fix excess IRA contributions to avoid or minimize the 6% excise tax.
  • Learn how beneficiaries can claim basis to lower taxes on inherited IRAs.
  • Identify how the 10% early distribution penalty works and common problems with claiming certain exceptions to that penalty.
  • Explore the dangers of holding alternative investments in IRAs and how a prohibited transaction can cause IRA funds to become exposed to bankruptcy creditors.
