How to Use Qualified Charitable Distributions to Achieve a Win-Win
On December 18, 2015, President Obama signed into law the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes Act of 2015. One provision benefitting seniors that was made “permanent” is the Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD). I say permanent with tongue-in-cheek, of course, since very little Congress does can ever be considered permanent, particularly when it comes to tax legislation.

Healthcare Benefits Available in Retirement
The Government provides healthcare benefits in retirement using three federal programs administered by the state and local counties: (1) Medicare, (2) Medicaid, and (3) VA Benefits. Medicare eligibility is generally automatic at age 65. Medicaid is based on financial need, it is not automatic at any age. In addition to these two programs, you may also be entitled to military healthcare benefits if you or your spouse is a veteran or retired service member. The majority of seniors utilize services provided under Medicare.

Creating Income in Retirement
For many, retirement has become something different from what it once was. Now, many retirees are just as active in retirement as they were when they were working full time. They are filling their days with meaningful non-profit work and embarking on second and third careers that they likely could not afford to try in their earlier lives.

Charitable Contributions from IRAs
The Pension Protection Act of 2006 first allowed taxpayers age 70½ and older to make tax-free charitable donations directly from their IRAs. By making a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from an IRA directly to a qualified charitable organization, older IRA owners were allowed to exclude up to $100,000 annually from gross income. These gifts, also known as "charitable IRA rollovers," would otherwise be taxable IRA distributions.

Two Ways to Roll over Retirement Funds
In general, a rollover is the movement of funds from one retirement savings vehicle to another. You may want, or need, to make a rollover for any number of reasons--your employment situation has changed, you want to switch investments, or you've received death benefits from your spouse's retirement plan. There are two possible ways that retirement funds can be rolled over--the 60-day rollover and the trustee-to-trustee transfer.
