About the program…
One of the most significant and overlooked benefits of tax-qualified retirement plans is the insulation of plan assets from the claims of creditors. We will review the ins-and-outs of the applicable rules protecting retirement plan and IRA assets. We will also analyze ways to enhance creditor protection for qualified plans and IRAs and to avoid pitfalls that may expose assets to attachment by creditors.
