IRAs: The Basics
You have finally received the promotion you’ve been dreaming about – IRA Coordinator! Now what do you do?
Were you able to get even a little bit of training before the last Guru left the bank – or are you “on your own”? Because of their extreme complexity, IRAs are a very difficult product to learn “on the job.” In short order, personnel begin to dislike this account because of the feeling of uncertainty that occurs when an accountholder asks unfamiliar questions. The goal of this 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.
- Review of top terminology of IRAs
- Basic Forms Required To Open, Close, Move and Maintain IRAs (have your own forms – including application, contribution and distribution forms – available during the webinar)

- Conversion Roth (IRS codes and reporting)
- SEP IRAs
