Program Content

How about that IRA Specialist promotion? The responsibility for the IRA Department has just been dumped in your lap. Now what do you do? Were you able to get even a little bit of training before the last Guru left the bank - or are you "on your own"? Because of their extreme complexity, IRAs are a very difficult product to learn “on the job.” In short order, personnel begin to dislike this account because of the feeling of uncertainty that occurs when an accountholder asks unfamiliar questions. The goal of this all day workshop is to start at the beginning of "What is an IRA"; "Who can have an IRA"; "How much can they contribute". All areas will be thoroughly discussed with emphasis on the responsibility of the financial institution vs. the responsibility shifting to the accountholder.

If you have been looking for a workshop that will answer all your simple and complex questions, this one fits the bill. This comprehensive A-Z workshop will provide the new IRA banker and supervisor with a complete understanding of all areas of the IRA account, as well as the newly-enacted regulations. Each participant will receive a completely updated 275-page IRA Training and Reference Manual.
