What an IRA roller coaster ride this has been!! After a year of deliberations, the SECURE Act was signed into law under the Appropriations Act on December 20, 2019. Most of the provisions were in effect on January 1, 2020. These are the most substantial changes we’ve had to IRAs in almost 15 years. There are too many issues and too many potential pitfalls financial institutions will experience if they don’t have a working knowledge of these changes. Forms will be changed, IRA software must be updated which may take a while.

On top of that, The CARES Act was passed 3 months later further making rules and regulations changes to IRAs. Because of this, you may have to do some explaining to your customers on what the permanent changes are and what the temporary changes are due to the COVID-19 virus.

In the IRA Basic class on Day 1, you may be thinking, I don’t even know the old rules to know what the new changes are. Unfortunately, you will need to know the old and the new rules because most of the IRA rules prior to 1/1/2020 are “grandfathered”. But don’t worry, you will have the totally updated IRA “Red” Book Training manual with lots of “cheat sheets” to show you the “before” and “after”

In the IRA Advanced Day 2, we will summarize the changes and then actually get into the nitty gritty of new distribution regulations to owner’s and beneficiaries - what stays the same and what changes? How do we disclose all these changes to our customers?

This intensive 1.5-day format will help you pull it all together by helping you learn the following:

Understanding the Top 20 Basic Terms of IRAs.
Next we will review the most commonly used forms to create and complete IRA transactions.
Since this is not vendor-form-specific, please bring a copy of your bank’s IRA Application form, Contribution Form, Distribution Form and Rollover Review or Rollover Certification Form as well as any other forms you may have questions on.

As the day goes on, you will pick up knowledge of the IRA plan types, Traditional, Roth, SEP and Health Savings Accounts.
And finally, on day 2 you will better-learn and comprehend the complicated areas of IRA Distributions to owners and beneficiaries and IRS reporting, resulting in a better picture of this confusing topic incorporating the new rules as part of the SECURE and CARES Act of 2020.
Whether you are looking to gain basic knowledge of IRAs, raise your comfort level or sharpen your skills with the most up-to-date rules and regulations, this two day format will cover everything! The newly revised full 275-page IRA Manual will be provided to you whether you attend the IRA Basics, IRA Advanced or both days.
