Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) have become one of the most important vehicles for retirement savings and income. AS the initial subscribers of these accounts pass away, spouses and the next generation are inheriting them and the complicated decisions that come with them. This presentation will focus on the opportunities and potential liabilities that our clients will face as they become more involved with inherited IRAs.
