There is no one better than Jim Lange to provide outstanding retirement and tax advice for academics. Retire Secure for Professors and TIAA Participants should be on the top of your personal reading list.

Burton G. Malkiel, Professor Emeritus of Economics, Princeton University and Author, A Random Walk Down Wall Street, 12th ed. 2019

A comprehensive tax-savvy retirement roadmap to saving more, having more, and leaving more from nationally recognized (quoted 36 times in the Wall Street Journal) and respected retirement planning expert James Lange, CPA, Attorney.

Far and away the best of Jim’s eight bestsellers for IRA and retirement plan owners. All the calculations, graphs, charts, and explanations were meticulously updated. Three new chapters offer new approaches to managing TIAA accounts. This book aims to help professors, TIAA participants and their families get the most out of their TIAA, IRAs, and other retirement saving plans—now and later.

But a punitive tax bite is ready to decimate your hard-earned savings. Are you prepared?

A provision in the SECURE Act could be financially devastating forthe children and grandchildren of most retirement plan owners. The ticking time bomb radically modifies the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) rules for Inherited retirement accounts. Learn how to mitigate the disastrous effects of this forced income tax acceleration that will decimate savings and undermine the long-term financial plans of many retirement plan owners and their families.

Plan for your pre- and post-retirement financial success.

Maximize the Benefits of Your TIAA, IRAs, and Other Retirement Assets

  • Learn the best saving and distribution strategies.

  • Step-by-step guidance for accessing TIAA accounts after retirement.

  • The Superpowers of Roth conversions could save hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes.

  • Optimize Social Security strategies

  • Take advantage of a “secret” retirement plan available at some universities to double your retirement contributions.

Provide for your Heirs

  • Ensure financial security for your surviving spouse.

  • Implement Lange’s Cascading Beneficiary Plan that adjusts for contingencies and provides flexibility.

Optimize Your Charitable Giving for the Charity and Your Family

  • Learn the critical Who Gets What strategy.

  • Learn how a Charitable Remainer Trust could be perfect for your preferred charity and your heirs.

Provide for an Heir with a Disability

If you have a beneficiary with a disability, you must read Chapter 13. The consequences of not attaining Social Security status as an Eligible Designated Beneficiary and taking the other recommended steps could be disastrous for a child’s long-term security.

Lange Accounting Group’s recommendations can potentially help you reach some coveted quality of life goals.

  • Take the whole family—kids and grandkids included—on an annual vacation with the confidence that you are not overextending your budget.

  • Fulfill some of your bucket-list dreams.

  • Learn to use financial gifting to help children when they need financial help--which serves everyone better than living a frugal lifestyle and leaving a larger inheritance with a large tax bill.

Implementing some, or all, of these timely strategies could save IRA and retirement plan owners and their families hundreds of thousands of dollars. All IRA and retirement plan owners, financial planners, and tax professionals should read it.
