Program Overview

For years, Mom and Pop poured their time, sweat, and money into their business. Like most business owners, they funneled the lion's share of their income back into the business to meet everyday expenses and to help it grow. Now they want to retire, only to discover that the business itself is their retirement plan. Do they sell it and live off the proceeds? If so, to whom? Keep it and begin taking money out? If so, how? And let's not forget the IRS, which has a keen interest in whatever choice is made.

The first part of this program discusses the retirement options available to the small business owner. Tax implications of C corps, S corps, and other business entities are also considered. The second part uses a case study to illustrate various planning options in practice.

SPECIAL BONUS SESSION included with program.

By the end of the program you will understand:

  • The scope, characteristics, and financial advice needs of the small business market
  • The full range of retirement options available to the small business owner
  • The roles of qualified, nonqualified, and executive bonus plans and tax-deferred annuities in small business owner retirement planning
  • What opportunities this extremely lucrative market presents to the financial service professional

Who should attend?

Financial planners, insurance producers, investment advisors, retirement counselors, estate planners, and business planners.
