IRA Benefits Trusts Line By Line provides a concise, easy to navigate path through the myriad and complex rules applicable to the post-death transmission of retirement benefits. The author, a noted expert on estate planning, distills the designated beneficiary and minimum distribution rules into an understandable framework for planning. Using that framework, the book explores and explains the options available to practitioners in stretching out an IRA in order to achieve the maximum income tax deferral. The role of trusts and the estate and income tax rules applicable to naming a trust as a beneficiary of an IRA account are discussed in detail. The book provides drafting tips and identifies drafting issues, along with suggesting possible solutions. The author explains the distinction between accumulation trusts and conduit trusts, and suggests possible uses for each. Finally, a comprehensive form of a trust to be used as the beneficiary of an IRA is provided, along with variations suited to accommodate specific drafting issues and planning goals. The technical language used in the forms is then explained in detail. This book is a must-have for practitioners engaged in estate planning for clients who have significant retirement assets and who want to protect and preserve those assets for their loved ones.
A CD-ROM is included, which provides searchable PDF and Word versions of the book and sample agreements.
