The SECURE Act: Who Are You and What Have You Done With My Minimum Distribution Rules?

American Law Institute Continuing Legal Education Group [ALI CLE]

Feb. 13, 2020
Recorded Online

The minimum distribution rules that apply to many IRAs and retirement plans have been around over 30 years. They have been challenging to interpret and apply, but the tax and estate planning community has gradually learned to work with them. During this period total U.S. IRA and retirement plan assets grew to nearly $25 trillion, accounting for 36% of household financial assets. Most of these funds are income tax deferred, representing significant potential tax revenue.

The SECURE Act that was signed into law on December 20, 2019 is the most significant retirement plan legislation in many years. The SECURE Act made many changes to retirement plan rules that have been touted as providing benefits to individuals and small businesses. How did Congress decide to pay for these changes? By curtailing the post-death deferral period under the minimum distribution rules, thus tapping into that $25 trillion nest egg more quickly.

If you’re a tax or estate planning practitioner, you need to get up to speed on these new rules right away. Register today for this 90 minute webcast and learn when to apply the new rules and when the old rules still apply.
