The SECURE Act and Its Impact on the Future of the U.S. Retirement System

The Presentation:

The retirement plan world was pleasantly surprised when long-awaited legislation was signed into law on December 20, 2019 as part of a year-end government funding bill. The SECURE Act, the largest package of pension reforms since 2006, is now law, and it includes 29 separate provisions affecting retirement plan sponsors. The SECURE Act dovetails with respect to the “retirement plan of the future” in terms of providing more broad based participant access to retirement plans, enabling participants to more effectively save for retirement, and help to prevent “leakage” from retirement plans prior to retirement.  Join us for an engaging discussion with respect to how the SECURE Act will positively impact the U.S. Retirement Plan Landscape.

Important features include:

  1. Improved access to retirement savings plan – including change to Safe Harbor plans
  2. Expanding savings opportunities, including increases in the minimum distribution age
  3. Distribution options to improve retirement security
  4. Tax credits for employers
