NEW YORK, April 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Ed Slott and Company, the nation's leading provider of technical IRA education for financial advisors, CPAs and attorneys, has made its "Instant IRA Success" eSeminar available on demand, allowing financial professionals access to online education anytime, anywhere. The program is comprised of seven web-based sessions that provide education on IRA distribution planning topics and include critical 2018 IRA updates, such as strategies for planning under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and changes to the estate tax exemption.
"Education is more important than ever, as we currently have the largest opportunity in our industry's history: a volatile stock market, a newly-implemented tax code that few understand and a surge of Baby Boomers transitioning into retirement and seeking guidance," said Ed Slott, CPA, a nationally recognized IRA expert, founder of Ed Slott and Company and creator of irahelp.com. "Consumers are searching for the most competent advisors to help them navigate the complexities of retirement planning, and advisors are eager for the advanced knowledge needed to serve them. Our recent in-person workshop covering this material was completely sold out, so providing the content in an on-demand format will make it even more accessible to advisors nationwide."
