Overview

This course gives CPAs the knowledge to help their clients plan for retirement by evaluating how much retirement income they will require and planning for how to reach their retirement goals.

Major Topics:

  • Retirement planning using variables such as desired lifestyle, travel plans, housing plans, medical needs and family needs to customize a retirement plan unique to the client
  • Using the residence and other real estate as retirement assets through equity and rent
  • Using the small business as a retirement resource through creative retirement plans, non-qualified deferred compensation, and converting the value of the business through sales within the family or to an outside party
  • Asset allocation, portfolio management, portfolio rebalancing, and investment selection concepts, before and after retirement, tax-saving investment transactions, and the optimal asset mix between retirement plans and taxable savings
  • Developing a three-legged retirement stool of employer retirement, savings, and Social Security, and timing the use of the legs of the stool to maximize after tax retirement benefits
  • Distribution/asset liquidation planning including the pros and cons of various annuity options, guidelines/strategies using the minimum required distribution rules for qualified plans and IRAs, beneficiary elections, and the use of trusts
  • Sustainable portfolio withdrawal rates during retirement for differing stock/bond/cash asset allocations, inflation rates, and tax rates both from tax deferred accounts and taxable accounts
