As year-end approaches, what are the critical compliance, reporting, and other issues that need to be revisited before the books are closed for this year? With IRAs, two things happen: the money comes in and goes out – all of which is reported to the IRS. Errors that occur during the year are magnified when reported to the IRS. This webinar will review the documentation and reporting that should have been done and how to correct errors before year-end. Don’t miss this important review of how the frontline and operations must work together to successfully administer IRAs.


  • IRA Issue 1 - Determining the proper IRA for your accountholder
  • IRA Issue 2 - Ensure proper documentation and forms are completed at account opening
  • IRA Issue 3 - Keeping contracts up-to-date with amendments
  • IRA Issue 4 - Confusing rollovers and transfers
  • IRA Issue 5 - Making sure the 70 ½ distributions are met
  • IRA Issue 6 - Premature distributions and the codes to use
  • IRA Issue 7 - Your job as withholding agent on IRAs
  • IRA Issue 8 - Inherited IRAs and death distributions
  • IRA Issue 9 - Compliance calendar to simplify year-end deadlines
  • IRA Issue 10 - IRS reporting and common errors


This informative session is designed for IRA coordinators and administrators, member service representatives, new account representatives, branch managers, branch administration, deposit operations, and anyone who works with IRAs.
