IRA’s Importance

•   Your IRA has grown due to:
      – Tax-deferred growth
      – Great stock market
        performance
      – Retirement plan - 401(k) -
        rollovers
•   Your IRA may be your biggest
    liquid asset
•   Your IRA may be your most
    vulnerable asset
Control Your IRA
•   Protect your largest liquid asset
•   IRAs must be managed to:
     – Avoid unnecessary taxation
     – Avoid unnecessary depletion
     – Ensure longest period of tax
        deferral
     – Ensure proper beneficiary
        designations
     – Ensure greatest distribution
        to your heirs
Traditional Estate Planning

   Traditional Estate Planning

 IRA Growth in Value

       40% - 50%
Traditional Estate Planning

    in value
•   Your IRA could be worth less than
    1/4 of its pre-death value
•   A $1,000,000 IRA could be
    reduced to less than $250,000
•   There is hope…

New Rules for IRA
Simplify Planning
 Decisions regarding RMD no longer
 irrevocable after 70 1/2
   – You can now change your
      beneficiary without effecting
      your RMD
   – RMD can now be calculated
      using the new rules even if
      over 70 1/2
A Better Way
•   Assumptions
     – IRA of $1 million
     – The value of the account will
        grow 8% annually*
     – The IRA does not have to be
        consumed for living, because
        there is sufficient non-IRA
        income
    *Assumes IRA grows at the rate of 8% per year. This rate is
    hypothetical and does not reflect the return of any particular
    investment. Investment returns fluctuate and there is no
    assurance that a single rate of return will be sustained over an
    extended period of time.
Advanced IRA Planning

• Dad takes minimum
  distributions until his
  death totaling over
  $1,000,000
• Mom now 82 rolls into her
  own IRA
• Names 40 year-old son as
  beneficiary
Advanced IRA Planning
•   Mom takes minimum distributions until
    her death
•   IRA could lose over $845,000 to Estate
    Taxes
•   Son is now 43 and elects minimum
    distributions based on his life
    expectancy totaling over $11,000,000
There is an even
better approach. . .
