IRA Distribution & Legacy Planning

Serving Massachusetts Clients with Strategies to Distribute and Protect their Retirement Plans and IRAs

Unfortunately, many IRA owners do not take the time needed to carefully plan and coordinate their IRA in their overall estate plan, which invariably leads to costly consequences for their estate. In fact, IRAs have a complex set of rules and tax issues (i.e. income, estate, and generation-skipping implications) that must be followed.
