Our Course Syllabus

Section 1: Tax Law Updates Now & Beyond

On December 20, 2017, Congress passed the most significant federal tax reform law in more than 30 years. The "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act" (TCJA), the new law, means substantial changes for individual and business taxpayers. Many provisions in this tax reform sunset in 2025, and in 2026 the tax laws revert to 2017 tax laws. We will discuss some of the major provisions and how you may benefit from them.


We will also discuss the Secure Act which was signed into law on December 20, 2019, and effective January 1, 2020, as it has significant changes to retirement planning and strategies to address these changes.

Section 2: Retirement Planning

Retirement planning is consistently and rapidly evolving, and preparing and living in retirement requires a comprehensive knowledge of risks, strategies, and what questions you should be asking yourself. This section will explore what retirement might look like by giving you many things to consider so you can have the best retirement life possible.

Section 3: Social Security & Medicare

You will learn about Social Security and Medicare, and we will discuss strategies on when to take Social Security. In addition, you will learn about the impact of Social Security taxation on your retirement. We will also look at the IRS thresholds that cause Social Security taxation. Finally, we will discuss strategies you can implement that can put you in a position to receive your Social Security free from tax.

Section 4: Tax Rate Risk

The United States Government has made trillions of dollars in promises for programs like Social Security and Medicare it may not be able to keep- absent significant changes. Some experts have suggested that tax rates may rise to support these programs solvent, or benefits may need to be reduced. Like most Americans, you have saved the lion's share of your retirement in tax-deferred accounts like 401ks and IRAs. If tax rates go up, how much of your hard-earned money will you be able to keep? This section discusses strategies that you may want to consider to help insulate your assets from the impact of higher taxes.

Section 5: Retirement Distribution Planning

There is a lot of static in the media and on the internet about how to best save for retirement. In this section, you will learn about the three basic types of investment accounts and how to use them to maximize cash flow in retirement. Should you contribute to an IRA or a Roth IRA? How about Roth Conversions? This section teaches you how to position your savings to minimize taxes and maximize cash flow in retirement.

Section 6: Estate Planning

Estate planning involves more than just reducing your taxes. It's also about making sure your assets are distributed as you wish – both now and after you are gone. This section will discuss strategies and techniques to reduce or eliminate estate taxes, delays, and legal challenges following your death. You will also learn to build an estate plan that addresses your wishes should you have an incapacity due to an illness or injury. Finally, we will investigate the benefits of using a trust versus a will when determining how to best transfer your assets upon death. Please note that we are not legal professionals, and the information provided will be general, educational, and based on the instructor's experience. Most of us spend a lifetime trying to keep family together, and yet a poor estate plan can divide a family in a very short time. Estate planning is not about how much money you have but about your demise's impact on those you leave behind.

Section 7: Risk Management

The investment strategies that got you to this point may not necessarily be the ones that see you safely through retirement. This section discusses the many investment risks that affect investment portfolios and retirement. Strategies will be discussed that can help minimize the impact on your retirement plans. Some of these risks include market volatility risk, market return risk, inflation risk, and longevity risk.

Section 8: Retirement Distribution Risk

How much money can you safely take out of your retirement accounts without risking running out of money? Does the order in which you withdraw your various assets in retirement matter? What happens if you experience market loss while taking distributions? This section discusses these retirement risks and outlines strategies and solutions designed to create more consistency in your retirement plan.

Section 9: Long-Term Care Planning

In this section, we will cover the Medicaid rules that govern asset spend-down in the event you should need long-term care. Then we will cover the four most common strategies used to mitigate long-term care risk. Finally, we will help you assess which long-term care planning strategy is best suited to your particular situation.
