SECURE 2.0: Looking for Source That Incorporates All Changes in a Single, Updated Document

"Very confusing, as you all know, to follow 'insert comma after x, add the following text after y, delete the words z and b' etc., etc. Do you know of a source where all this has been done, and there is final updated text of all the updated provisions?"

Mechanics of NQDC Distribution

"First of all, I want to thank all of the great resources on this board for answers as we are trying to set up our NQDC plan. It appears that we are moving toward an account balance type plan with either a limited menu of investments or something that mirrors our 401k plan. We are either going to use an outside broker to hold the accounts or possibly our 401k plan administrator. I am looking down the the road at the eventual distributions. I know that they are supposed to be reported on a W2 to the employee. I am really trying to understand the mechanics of the distribution if we use the 401k company. Do the custodian send the funds to the company and then we send to the former employee? I have heard some nightmare issues regarding participants getting both 1099s and W2s and then it looks like the income gets double reported. As I understand it, the proper procedure is that we would report Box 1 wages, nothing in Box 3,5 as the FICA should have already been paid under special timing and the report a Deferred comp amount in Box 11. Am I basically on the right track?"
