IRA Problem: Income tax at death.
IRA Solution: Stretch, Charitable, Roth — any one of them is vastly superior to leaving an IRA subject to income tax at death.
Don Prehn and Steve Savant have put together an informative video that examines each alternative. It’s in two parts with the first segment (seven minutes) discussing the three options and the second segment (six minutes) covering the Roth IRA in more detail.
The main takeaway from the Roth evaluation is this: The tax cost to convert to a Roth is not a cost at all; it is an investment that produces a terrific return both for your clients and their heirs.

One thing I hope you didn’t miss near the end of the first video segment is Don’s discussion of the value of an Inherited Roth IRA. While there are plenty of reasons discussed in both segments as to why a Roth conversion is valuable, the gain to the heirs in after tax cash flow of more than $17 million from the Inherited Roth is extraordinary:
- $ 3,671,890 total after tax cash flow from the Inherited IRA.
- $ 20,967,997 total after tax cash flow from an Inherited Roth IRA.
That’s a 571% increase. Hard to believe? Click here to review the Inherited IRA vs. Inherited Roth IRA comparison Illustrations from the InsMark Illustration System.

InsMark’s Referral Resources
(Put our Illustration Experts to Work for Your Practice)
We created the Referral Resources listed below to deliver a “do-it-for-me” illustration service in a way that makes sense for your practice. All are IMOs and InsMark Agency Platinum Power Producers®, and they are highly skilled at running InsMark software. They will utilize your choice of insurance company, and they do not require a commission split.
Mention my name when you talk to our Referral Resources as they have promised to take special care of my readers. My only request is this: if a Referral Resource helps you get the sale, place at least that case through them; otherwise, you will be taking unfair advantage of their generous offer to InsMark licensees.
Save time and get results with any InsMark illustration!
