As many of you have experienced, IRAs have had many changes over the last 3 years - including the SECURE Act of 2020, the CARES Act of 2020, the Proposed Regulations released in February 2022, and the IRS Notice 2022-53 to put the Proposed Regulations 'on hold'. This is a must-attend webinar to grasp the latest rules and regulations regarding beneficiaries and the 2023 Cost of Living Adjustments.

IRAs have always been the most difficult bank product to learn and keep up with. One reason is that as the interest rates went down, many IRAs were transferred into the stock market and investment companies to get a better return. This left the bankers with very little practice opening and maintaining IRAs. Presently, since the stock market can be unpredictable and as the interest rates increase, many retail banks are seeing the more conservative investors transfer the money into a guaranteed interest rate product at the bank. While this may give the bankers more experience in dealing with IRAs, it also increases the anxiety about making sure the proper information is given out to the customers.

2023 brings some of the largest Cost of Living Adjustments we've had to IRAs in over 20 years. The IRS has also gotten very serious about IRA Distribution forms and the new W-4R being signed for every IRA distribution for the IRA owner to opt-in or out of federal income tax withholding. You will learn all the latest rules and regulations included in this vital training.
