MONEY CONCEPTS TEACHES CREDIT UNIONS TO PREPARE MEMBERS FOR UNPRECEDENTED ROTH CONVERSION OPPORTUNITIES
WASHINGTON — NAFCU Services Corporation (www.nafcu.org/nafcuservices) today announced the release of a free webcast created with their Preferred Partner, Money Concepts International, Inc., “Preparing Your Members for the Unprecedented Roth Conversion Opportunities.” The webcast discusses nine timely reasons for credit union members to convert their traditional individual retirement account (IRA) to a Roth IRA.
The 17-minute webcast recording and corresponding handouts are available at www.nafcu.org/moneyconcepts.
In the webcast, wealth management expert and Money Concepts Executive Vice President Barry Dayley reviews some extraordinary incentives for credit union members to consider converting their funds into a Roth IRA in 2010. He explains how the current market provides a low-cost conversion opportunity with potentially significant savings in tax dollars and shows how to benefit from the tax-free stretch.
“Credit union members who have experienced loss on their traditional IRAs should consider taking advantage of paying tax on a much lower amount of money. When the market comes back, members can then transfer funds tax-free into a Roth IRA,” explains Dayley. “This opportunity in 2010 is without limitation since this year the Roth conversion is available to anyone regardless of income, when in the past there has been a $100,000 income requirement.”
Dayley urges credit unions to be proactive in providing financial guidance to members in order to take advantage of this timely opportunity, whether by offering financial planning and wealth management services or organizing Roth conversion seminars and workshops.
“The new laws that have opened eligibility for converting to a Roth IRA are unprecedented,” said David Frankil, president of NAFCU Services Corporation. “Credit unions that are diligent in educating their members about this unique opportunity will see immediate benefits.”
