Information

Why Attend?

  • Understand and master the important tax changes brought by the SECURE Act in the area of retirement benefits
  • Review the need of clarification on certain provisions of the Act
  • Determine how the Act is impacting the existing plans of their clients, and develop strategies to fix what needs to be fixed if necessary
  • Understand the new estate planning techniques that are available

On December 20, 2019, the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019 (the “SECURE Act”) was signed into law by the president with some provisions effective immediately, while others became effective on January 1, 2020. It is the most important retirement legislation since the Pension Protection Act in 2006. Several provisions significantly changed the planning and administration of estate and trusts.

The SECURE Act includes substantial changes that impact estate planning for retirement benefits including IRAs, from raising the required minimum distribution from 70½ to 72, eliminating the age limit for contributions to IRAs, seriously limiting the stretch distributions of inherited IRAs, and replacing them with a 10-year payout period. A special category of beneficiaries has been created called Eligible Designated Beneficiaries (“EDB”), providing special benefits for disabled, chronically ill, minor children, and individuals who are less than 10 years younger than the decedent.

This new category of EDB provides new planning opportunities and strategies, and the drafting of “conduit trusts” and “accumulation trusts” should be revisited as drastically impacted by the 10-year payout concept.
