Program Content

This online learning program, presented as a live webcast, will be also archived for QAS Self Study.  The program will be available for viewing for 12 months after the live webcast. A panel of IRS and industry experts will present the content during a live, interactive discussion, where participant questions can be submitted. Questions will be answered live on the program or posted on the Resources page.

The program, through a lively round-table discussion and real time interaction with the audience, looks at how taxes affect saving for retirement and, later, drawing down those savings. The program will focus on the various vehicles for retirement savings, including qualified plans, IRAs, and other, traditional savings vehicles. Panelists then will turn to what happens after retirement and how to protect assets in the most tax-wise fashion.
By the end of the program, participants will have a practical understanding, through accurate, current, and effectively designed communications, of the various retirement savings vehicles, both tax-favored and otherwise, the tax costs associated with drawing down those savings, and tax issues that may arise in protecting retirement assets.
