Exploring the IRA Universe – Part I
IRAs: The Basics Definitions, Forms and Plan Types
So you have finally received that “promotion” you never wished for – IRA Guru!! On the first day of training, you feel like someone put you in a rocket ship and launched you into outer space. In other words, you have NO IDEA what they are talking about. Everything just sounds alien to you.
It’s true. IRAs are a different world from the other accounts at your financial institution. Oh, they may look similar, but the rules, regulations and IRS reporting build the complications to the point where you feel like you are on another planet!! And, just when you finally grasp it, they change the rules again!
The goal of this Part I IRA Basic Webinar is to start at the beginning of “What is an IRA?” Who can have an IRA? How much can they contribute? All areas will be thoroughly discussed with emphasis on the responsibility of the financial institution vs. the responsibility shifting to the accountholder.
This is part of a four-part webinar series on IRAs. To view or purchase the entire series, click here.
