Two Roads - And Now You Must Choose Just One To Travel On

Two Roads To Choose From

Most people with problem oriented inherited IRA accounts hire my firm's services after calling to chat with me for free.  After just a few minutes of conversation, they can tell I am actively engaged on multiple case files and speak with authority on applicable laws and potential options. 

The most common response I get is "You seem to know what you are talking about" or "I like what you are saying because it sounds better than what my local financial adviser is telling me".

Past inherited IRA clients after being rescued from "bad advisers" have called me a "financial angel" and even one stated I was "an answer to prayer" a few years ago.  Articles quoting my knowledge in the Wall Street Journal, Fox Business News, Bankrate.com and other national media outlets help direct potential clients to this website you are now reading.

Over all these years, I am sure some of the former advisers that got "fired" due to my advice given to new inherited IRA clients -- had some choice words to call me that aren't very nice at all. I do remember one former adviser years ago who called me a "bean counter" and told me to butt out of his client's retirement plan situation. The client listened to me. I also remember the same financial planner here in Phoenix after making fun of me, running a full page ad in the paper declaring his knowledge on inherited IRA's. Based on what I knew, that would be very little. 

I will have to admit that no adviser on this difficult subject is going to be an expert after taking a course or reading a book. It takes years of experience and client cases to achieve the level I now operate at along with Saul's help. The rest are all pretenders who most likely have ulterior motives in giving you free inherited IRA advice. Normally, they want a new commission or fee on YOUR inherited money... 

You see, it is extremely rare to find former advisers of the deceased IRA owner that are also competent and experienced inherited IRA advisers. It is almost impossible to think your current adviser (or your deceased parent's former adviser) is going to give you all your options now.  Or even get it right.  The problem is you may not know the difference if they malpractice. Registering Below is a good start to educate yourself to be able to discern truth from fiction in what these "inherited" advisers tell you.

I know, you  inherited your parent's adviser along with their retirement plan/s. But with some tact and dignity, they can nicely and easily be asked to respect your desire to seek your own advisers since it is now YOUR money.

These inherited advisers will petition surviving beneficiaries to follow their advice and "roll over" the account so they can continue to manage the money for you.  If you should be so lucky, they will actually create a new inherited IRA account which is definitely the right way to go. But even then, they may miss the longer stretch period you are eligible for when any IRA is payable to a living trust or stand alone IRA trust. In our actual case files -- they will tell you the five year rule applies and all your inherited IRA money must be removed in five years after the year  of death, when the decedent died after taking one or more RMD payouts. This is malpractice folks and it happens in over 50% of the client cases we take on a Professional advisory basis.

Most times, when client information is submitted to us for review (fax, or emailed pdf files work or we provide a dropbox.com private electronic directory for you), the paperwork these former advisers want you to sign is wrong. In the most egregious cases - it is a lump sum distribution request which means if you sign the forms, you will be paying income taxes on 100% of your beneficiary share yet this year! It doesn't help at all that the forms are confusing and vary between multiple custodian accounts.  You can easily sign your own fate away if you don't read and fill them out carefully.

Now, I fully recognize and admit that those bad advisers giving bad advice drive visitors to this website who are estate managers and administrators or actual beneficiaries who question the options these advisers give them after the death of an IRA owner. I know my firm wouldn't get hired as often as it does to fix a problematic inherited IRA situation without them. But, I do this service along with my other financial services provided by my firm. Rarely do I get a break from assisting clients with IRA problems - because it has gotten worse the past few years and I have been busier then ever as a consultant. 

Most often the problems are CAUSED by the very adviser telling the new IRA beneficiaries (or estate manager) something that just isn't true. They hope you won't know the difference and just blindly invest what is left after taxes or penalties paid caused by their bad advice. Of course, they expect you to invest with them.  And if you don't... like I said, I get called a lot of choice names by enlightening my clients with 100% of their options. 

These inept and un-skilled advisers caused popular trust, estate and retirement planning author and expert -- Boston's lawyer Natalie B. Choate -- to personally congratulate me a few years ago for telling on them in our Wall of Shame page on this website.  All true inherited IRA advisers subscribe to her retirement planning "Bible", newsletters and updates: Life and Death Planning for Retirement Benefits, 7th edition.

Our firm will not work with a current adviser who gave you or your deceased loved one bad inherited IRA advice that later proves to have caused you harm or financial loss.  Besides, few are going to be able to handle this, the most complicated section of the tax code. Nor do they deserve to assist you now if they were the cause of your current problem discovered. If they are the cause of tax or legal problems for either you, the estate, or a trust as beneficiary of large IRA dollars - unfortunately we can't accept a request to assist you if you want us to "work with them". 

I personally bypass all advisers anyway in my work for inherited IRA clients. But I will talk to the supervisors or legal departments of the firms they represent for the benefit of you, our potential consulting client.  This is a tremendous time saver and it helps cut to the chase and perhaps solve your current inherited IRA problem quickly and at very low expense. 

Right now, you need someone who understands both traditional and self directed IRAs and also fully knows how they affect estates and living trusts when they are named as the primary beneficiary.

In summary, know my firm is "Well Connected" with some of America's top inherited IRA/retirement legal and tax advisers and authors -- all experts and well versed on Inherited IRAs, Taxation, Estates & Trusts.   

Some of those advisers provide the books and guidelines that all of us inherited IRA advisers must use in our advisory practice.  Being quoted in the same national news articles with tax professionals like attorney Natalie B. Choate, CPA Ed Slott, or financial adviser Michael Kitces the past few years is truly a highlight in my long financial consulting and practice. 

It is also your assurance that you have found the "professionals" to fix your IRA problem at a reasonable price.  Unfortunately more than a few of America's financial advisers continue to malpractice in a  "big way" on client accounts before these clients die.  This leaves beneficiaries very few favorable options -- until they contact FSI's inherited services division. If there is a way, we will find it.

With much resources, talent and experience at my disposal, we take on some of the largest IRA cases in America and rescue the dollars from bad advice.  In almost every instance, my firm is able to rescue the money from instant or short term taxation. In every case, clients have benefited by our advisory services by being properly educated to make better decisions.  

So, if you call to test my skills, be aware that in order to help you, I may have to first rescue you from the bad advice another adviser may have already given you.  Or give you that all important "second opinion" before you sign a single piece of paper you may have laying on your desk this very minute. I challenge you to make that call. There is no obligation or fee for your first inquiry.

M.D. Anderson

"I have helped save my clients countless millions of dollars from needless taxation due to bad advisers and bad advice on inherited IRA accounts."

M.D. Anderson, AZCLDP, Accountant, Realtor

To date, since starting my Inherited IRA consulting division way back in 1998 -- I have helped save my clients countless millions of dollars from needless taxation due to bad advisers and bad advice on inherited IRA accounts.

Sadly, the bad advisers were many times formerly admired and trusted by your deceased parent or loved one. Your guard can easily be down if a large Inherited IRA account is left to you and you are given advice by some of these folks who mean well -- but don't really have a clue just how difficult it is to discern the proper steps to preserve IRA money after death so it doesn't get instantly taxed. Or, taxed on a much faster schedule due to mistakes, misdeeds, or advisory malpractice that frankly, I see on almost every inherited IRA case I work on now.

I've had too many calls from heirs already in Inherited IRA HELL!

TIP:  Seek Counsel at the Outset

An inherited IRA article I was interviewed in, that published in 2012 on bankrate.com and Fox Business.com -- "Eight Pitfalls to Avoid With an Inherited IRA", correctly quoted what you must understand at the onset --  "Seek Counsel at the Outset". No better advice could have been spoken by reporter Sheyna Steiner. Especially if you are an owner or beneficiary of a larger Inherited IRA account that you would like to stretch the years out as far as possible before the bulk of the money actually gets taxed.   

THE HAMMER

Some of my past clients have penned that the "M.D." in my name stands for "M.D. Hammer".  I always maintain a professional attitude but occasionally I have to "get tough" for a client's behalf, while serving their best interests in the Inherited IRA arena. One thing is for sure... I never back down when large financial firms try to intimidate me. (I have never lost an argument since they are always wrong and they eventually always back down or yield)  

Most likely, it is your FINANCIAL INVESTMENT ADVISER who has caused your specific problem, and as noted previously, I do not normally communicate with them. (Just those who supervise them)

YES, I HELP YOU FIRE YOUR PAST ADVISERS!

I can also assist in discussing problem areas BEFORE death, so the big mistakes I am normally hired on after a loved one dies, can be avoided and eliminated.  As a professional tax consultant and financial adviser, I can't say it any more plainly -- FIX IT BEFORE IT BREAKS!  This in turn, can protect you as well as your current advisers. I can intervene before death occurs and help them NOT to malpractice.  By employing my prevention consulting services before you die, proper education and guidance will guarantee NO ONE ends up in our "Inherited IRA Hell" we talk about in this website. (That is as long as you don't let another bad adviser mess it up again...)

If you are reading this after losing a loved one, you have my profound sympathies. I fully understand just how devastating and overwhelming the estate settlement process can be, especially when placed on top of the grieving process. If you are also an inherited IRA beneficiary, I understand that "deer in the headlights" feeling you may now have. So, I suggest you get some professional help. I have over 39 years of combined tax, investment, mortgage banking, legal and real estate experience in my professional practice.  I have clients nationwide as well ex-patriots in foreign countries.

Frankly, my advisory to fix a problem you now have, or to fix it before it becomes a problem will cost just a fraction -- as to what the true and total cost of a needless big tax or legal mistake could cost you in the long run.

Especially if things go horribly wrong. Keep that in mind when you seriously consider who your ally is going to be in the journey to keep your newly inherited IRA funds away from immediate taxation from Uncle Sam. 

No matter how scared you may be right now while reading this website -- few clients of our firm end up in that "hell" we talk about.  A minimum retainer can help you find out what your current status is.  It's a steal, especially if my tax review reports you have options for stretch IRA potential of inherited funds. But, you need to hire the right person to get the right results. 

The example below shows just how easy you can be in "hell" if you don't know how to play the inherited IRA game: 

A HELLISH EXAMPLE: If you are attempting a self-directed IRA with your inherited IRA money, did anyone yet explain how a simple mistake not caught in the same year it happened -- could cost you a 100% penalty from the IRS? (The custodian legally is charged the penalty, but every custodian is held harmless when you employ them, so the wrong person/company/plan could take your entire IRA!) 

Delaying discovering the mistake in this example could cost 100% of your self directed IRA!  Now, that would be hell wouldn't it?

In closing, If you are looking for intelligence and experience, at a reasonable fee structure, hire the Inherited IRA rescue team!

Testimonial #1

FSI Client(Received on 9/30/08)  "My first interaction with Mike happened back in September 2005 approximately 1 month after my mother passed away in Sun Lakes, Arizona. Mike had made my mothers living trust some years prior to her death. I had copies of bits and pieces of the trust my mother had sent me but had never seen the whole trust until it was given to me by her new husband of 8 months only hours after her death. Being unfamiliar with the trust as well as devastated by the sudden passing of my mother I went through it briefly and hit what I felt were the high points. It wasn’t until I arrived back in Spokane, Washington that I sought out help ciphering through the whole trust with the help of a reputable living trust attorney. His initial charge to complete it all would be between $15,000- $25,000. It was a fairly substantial trust but I felt that was a bit over the top. I then sat down and read it cover to cover and stumbled upon a statement that said to contact Mike Anderson if any problems were encountered reading the trust. So I figured I’d contact him before proceeding forward of course figuring another big price tag to get help!

Boy was I pleasantly surprised after speaking with Mike for just a few minutes and finding out he could take care of everything for somewhere around $1000-$1500 depending on what changes my mother had done to it. I sent the trust to Mike. From that point on I never had any worries. Mike kept in constant contact with me always keeping me informed of what needed to be done and when and then he took care of it. My mother (bless her heart) had made quite numerous changes some on her own and some with assistance from her new husband of 8 months. Most changes were done by pencil scratch out and re-written in new information. Mike was able to cipher through all the legal and questionable changes that had taken place and handled everything there in Arizona.

I felt so comfortable with Mike’s  guidance and knowledge I had him go ahead and make living trust’s for both me and my wife.  I have been in contact with Mike over the last 3 years asking guidance when I make additions and changes to my trust and he is always very expedient and professional in getting back to me. I cannot thank Mike enough for all the monetary value he saved but more for all the mental grief he saved me.  Thanks Mike!"

Saul S Gefter(Received on 6/27/08) "I have known Michael Anderson for some time as both a colleague and as an associate of our 105 year-old Brazilian international law firm, located in Rio de Janeiro. Mike and his Arizona firm, Financial Strategies, Inc. has been contracted to do strategic financial, tax, trust and estate planning and development on behalf of an important and long-standing client, a member of one of Brazil’s most famous families with assets in Brazil and abroad .

I can personally attest to his business acumen, sharpness of mind, outstanding professional abilities and most importantly, his honesty, integrity and professionalism in accomplishing the most difficult and complex tasks put to him.  Mike’s personal interest in the well-being and concern for the client’s interests entrusted to him is remarkable and noteworthy. His Estate Planning & Trust Portfolio has become a model for others attempting to match his efforts in producing such an important and meaningful document to both clients, their heirs and family members.

Our office has constantly dealt with professionals in all sectors world-wide over the years and I can attest to that fact that Mike is head and shoulders above them all. We look forward to a continued and fruitful relationship with Michael Anderson and his firm for years to come."

Testimonial #3

FSI Client(Received on 6/14/08): "It was my mother, Berniece Robb, who first  introduced me to Michael Anderson.  Mother's tax accountant extraordinaire for a period of time, she became aware of Mike's family trust preparation capabilities.  Contacting referrals, she received splendid encouragement from individuals who had engaged Mr. Anderson in preparing their trusts.  Mother placed her confidence in Mike and asked him to proceed with her estate.  Soon after, as I was a widow with three children, Mother encouraged me to do the same.  That was winter of 1992.

Mother died in April of 1996.  As difficult as the loss was emotionally,  Mike stepped up to the plate  (Mike was only a phone call away),  just as he informed us he would and as the trust would.   As successor to Mother's estate, I had immediate access to her accounts, including the ability to write checks for her funeral expenses.  There was no probate, no waiting, no need for approval from brokerage houses and financial institutions, and no added expenses.  Everything was in order and fell mercifully in place, thanks to Mike's foresight in trust preparation.

While periodic updates may be necessary due to changes in the law (I have had one), I can say with confidence that  I have peace of mind Mike will inform me of such changes and my children will experience the same ease when it comes time to settling my estate at my death.  My children will know my final wishes.  Short of that, the individuals I have chosen will have the trust tools (Powers of Attorney), to deal with all health and financial issues should I be incapable of doing so.


In all sincerity, Thank you Mike Anderson for offering me "Shaffer Family Trust" peace of mind.

FSI Client(Received on 5/8/08):  "Mike Anderson has been handling our taxes for our small business for about 20 years. He never keeps us waiting for answers when we have questions about anything from taxes to finances to real estate.  He is very knowledgeable and we know that we can trust his advice.

He recently did our trust for our family and it was wonderful!  He seems to make it come alive by the way he represents the family in personal ways by adding pictures of us and even our pets.  Mike makes our life run more smoothly and he does it at a very affordable price."
