Roth Conversions and Your Post-Retirement Redzone Webinar
If you are retired there are several key planning tools and sources of income that can impact your financial future.
We recently hosted a webinar for a conversation on planning strategies that can help keep you in the post-retirement redzone, including:
- Roth conversions and when it makes sense to utilize them
- Minimize taxes in retirement
- Medicare costs and secondary coverage considerations
Please Note: This webinar was presented to an audience of United Airlines pilots, but the concepts discussed regarding Roth conversions and their interaction with Medicare premiums have broad applicability to all airline pilots.
