Asset Protection for Retirement Plans
Retirement plans present a major planning opportunity for asset protection purposes. Both federal and state laws give retirement plans favorable treatment by providing owners of such plans a certain sense of security with respect to the assets within the plan. However, most of the protections afforded to plan participants are not available to their beneficiaries. This presentation will focus on the rights of creditors against owners and beneficiaries of retirement plans.
