While many retirement plan issues come and go, distribution and taxation rules present a continuing challenge to plan administrators. The plan eventually must distribute all plan assets, and each distribution has tax consequences.
This Web seminar reviews the general taxation rules that apply to plan distributions, including the timing of distribution rules, consent requirements and rollover options, and premature distribution penalty. The seminar also includes a discussion of the complex required minimum distribution rules, and the withholding requirements for distributions. Intertwined throughout the discussion the speaker explores distributions to non-participants, such as death beneficiaries and QDRO alternate payees. Finally, the presentation covers the options and taxation (including basis recovery rules) associated with Roth contributions, rollovers and transfers (including in-plan Roth transfers).
Additionally, recent guidance from the IRS and articles in financial publications have created interest in after-tax voluntary employee contributions. For decades, these have been the forgotten step-child of the retirement plan world. That has been changing. This seminar will include an in depth look at after-tax employee contributions and how they are used. We will closely examine current strategies and discuss whether they work and whether they make sense.
For experienced practitioners, this web seminar provides an excellent refresher. For newer practitioners, this seminar is a must. All attendees will benefit from a holistic explanation of the distribution and taxation rules.
