General $108.00  Add to Cart 

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act, (TCJA) passed by Congress and signed into law in late December 2017, is the most major piece of tax reform since the 1980s.  The results of this legislation are major changes to both personal and business tax rates.  Deductions and exclusions have also undergone dramatic simplification and reform.  The new law also has caused drastic changes to estate, gift and generation skipping transfer taxes and alternative minimum taxes as well.

Now that we have had a year to shake out the wrinkles and listen to the interpretations, Chris Bird, our resident tax expert, will explain the most pertinent implications of the new law.  Our 2019 Tax Update course is one you won’t want to miss.

Feb 27 – Feb 27 Understanding Indexed Annuity and Life Insurance Contracts Bloomington, MN
General 4
Eligible CFP® CE Hours 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

The growth in popularity of indexed insurance products, specifically fixed indexed annuities and fixed indexed life insurance policies, has been dramatic. While these products are considered fixed contracts, the interest that is credited to these products is based on the performance of an external financial index.  The basic concepts of these products may seem simple, but they are among the most complex of all insurance products. To many, they fall in the middle of the risk spectrum, between traditional fixed annuities and life insurance policies and variable annuities and variable life insurance policies.

This course will explain how these products compare and contrast with their fixed counterparts.  The course will also cover in detail different interest crediting methods and design characteristics of the indexed product, and the important suitability and market conduct issues related to these products.

Mar 08 – Mar 08 We’re in Probate—Now What? Bloomington, MN
General 4
Eligible CFP® CE Hours 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

Probate is a relatively civil, legal process to help families handle the complex work of wrapping up their loved one's life. Just like cleaning out the house when you move, it's a big job. The bills have to be paid, things are thrown away that do not have value, and things of value are either sold or given to the person intended. All of this takes leadership (Personal Representative), time (at least a year), organization (hire an attorney to follow the legal process) and patience. Families benefit from this process, and more often than not the family gets along. Once in a while, people fight and when they do, the legal process helps to keep the bloodshed to a minimum. This course will thoroughly cover the purpose of probate and the probate process. Persons who take this course will be better able to guide and counsel clients with the gained understanding of how the probate process works.

The Tax Cut and Jobs Act, (TCJA) passed by Congress and signed into law in late December 2017, is the most major piece of tax reform since the 1980s.  The results of this legislation are major changes to both personal and business tax rates.  Deductions and exclusions have also undergone dramatic simplification and reform.  The new law also has caused drastic changes to estate, gift and generation skipping transfer taxes and alternative minimum taxes as well.

Now that we have had a year to shake out the wrinkles and listen to the interpretations, Chris Bird, our resident tax expert, will explain the most pertinent implications of the new law.  Our 2019 Tax Update course is one you won’t want to miss.

This class looks at commercial property insurance and inland marine insurance through a case study of the Northwestern Bank fire. You will learn the underwriting of property and business income insurance, causes of loss, how property claims are adjusted, and how reinsurance is applied to reduce an insurance company's exposure.

Apr 29 – Apr 29 Understanding Indexed Annuity and Life Insurance Contracts St. Paul, MN
General 4
Eligible CFP® CE Hours 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

The growth in popularity of indexed insurance products, specifically fixed indexed annuities and fixed indexed life insurance policies, has been dramatic. While these products are considered fixed contracts, the interest that is credited to these products is based on the performance of an external financial index.  The basic concepts of these products may seem simple, but they are among the most complex of all insurance products. To many, they fall in the middle of the risk spectrum, between traditional fixed annuities and life insurance policies and variable annuities and variable life insurance policies.

This course will explain how these products compare and contrast with their fixed counterparts.  The course will also cover in detail different interest crediting methods and design characteristics of the indexed product, and the important suitability and market conduct issues related to these products.

General $59.00  Add to Cart 

Probate is a relatively civil, legal process to help families handle the complex work of wrapping up their loved one's life. Just like cleaning out the house when you move, it's a big job. The bills have to be paid, things are thrown away that do not have value, and things of value are either sold or given to the person intended. All of this takes leadership (Personal Representative), time (at least a year), organization (hire an attorney to follow the legal process) and patience. Families benefit from this process, and more often than not the family gets along. Once in a while, people fight and when they do, the legal process helps to keep the bloodshed to a minimum. This course will thoroughly cover the purpose of probate and the probate process. Persons who take this course will be better able to guide and counsel clients with the gained understanding of how the probate process works.

Jun 12 – Jun 12 Understanding Indexed Annuity and Life Insurance Contracts Bloomington, MN
General 4
Eligible CFP® CE Hours 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

The growth in popularity of indexed insurance products, specifically fixed indexed annuities and fixed indexed life insurance policies, has been dramatic. While these products are considered fixed contracts, the interest that is credited to these products is based on the performance of an external financial index.  The basic concepts of these products may seem simple, but they are among the most complex of all insurance products. To many, they fall in the middle of the risk spectrum, between traditional fixed annuities and life insurance policies and variable annuities and variable life insurance policies.

This course will explain how these products compare and contrast with their fixed counterparts.  The course will also cover in detail different interest crediting methods and design characteristics of the indexed product, and the important suitability and market conduct issues related to these products.

Jun 26 – Jun 26 We’re in Probate—Now What? Bloomington, MN
General 4
Eligible CFP® CE Hours 4
General $59.00  Add to Cart 

Probate is a relatively civil, legal process to help families handle the complex work of wrapping up their loved one's life. Just like cleaning out the house when you move, it's a big job. The bills have to be paid, things are thrown away that do not have value, and things of value are either sold or given to the person intended. All of this takes leadership (Personal Representative), time (at least a year), organization (hire an attorney to follow the legal process) and patience. Families benefit from this process, and more often than not the family gets along. Once in a while, people fight and when they do, the legal process helps to keep the bloodshed to a minimum. This course will thoroughly cover the purpose of probate and the probate process. Persons who take this course will be better able to guide and counsel clients with the gained understanding of how the probate process works.
