IRA Beneficiary Trusts And Post-Death Administration: Strategies And Tools For Implementation
|Date / Time:
IRA beneficiary trusts have gained popularity for clients’ IRAs and for their qualified retirement plans later rolled into IRAs. Counsel must know how to administer such trusts after a client’s death. Although there are some similarities to administering a living trust, there are many distinctions.
Counsel must determine the measuring lives for purposes of RMDs, coordinate with trustees of living trusts for estate tax related issues, including income tax and asset protection elections, and coordinate with IRA custodians for payout of RMDs and retitling of IRAs.
Practitioners should be able to establish beneficiaries’ sub-share trusts and modify them if needed. Counsel must also anticipate problems that may arise from defective beneficiary designation forms, outdated trust terms, or missed deadlines under the IRC and regulations.
Listen as our authoritative panel of estate planning attorneys discusses best practices for administering IRA beneficiary trusts, including a post-mortem checklist, to enable counsel to handle important implementation steps and issues.
- Advantages of IRA beneficiary trusts
- Measuring lives for RMDs

- How should counsel best coordinate with trustees, executors and custodians on estate tax related issues, payout of RMDs, and retitling of IRAs or qualified plans?
- What are the best practices to establish or modify beneficiaries’ sub-share trusts?
