Exploring the IRA Universe – Part II
IRAs: Beyond the Basics - IRA Transfers and IRA and QP Rollovers
As we continue our journey through “IRA Space” we come to the most abused terminology in IRAs.
Everyone knows you can only do one rollover per “IRA” in a 12 month period – right? But, what’s the definition of an “IRA” – An IRA account? – An IRA plan? – An IRA plan type? The actual verbiage on this has always been a little gray and subject to interpretation. In a landslide, mind-blowing court case, the whole rollover world has been turned upside down. Big changes and clarifications regarding rollovers were effective January 2015. As you can see below, this is a jam-packed informational Webinar. And in August 2016, there were even more changes regarding “self-certification” of rollovers occurring beyond the 60 day period and financial institutions still being able to accept them.
This is part of a four-part webinar series on IRAs. To view or purchase the entire series, click here.
