Many people have retirement plans but few can fully articulate the basic rules concerning distributions from those plans. This is understandable considering the federal rules concerning retirement plan distributions are some of the most complex around.
The purpose of this course, led by attorney Spencer Reames, is to give a basic introduction to - and overview of - some of the fundamental rules so that practitioners have a general understanding of the retirement plan distribution framework.
Spencer L. Reames focuses on estate planning and litigation, representing clients throughout the New York metropolitan area in probate contests, contested accountings, discovery and other related proceedings. His practice includes conducting pretrial discovery, legal research and drafting motions

Instructor was knowledgeable and thorough in his coverage of the material.
