Description

This program will review many important SECURE Act changes that take effect in 2021, as well as the new rules for restarting required minimum distributions (RMDs). Presenters will discuss the distribution rules applying to the beneficiaries of IRAs and employer plans that changed with the enactment of the SECURE Act, limiting the distribution options starting with beneficiaries who inherited IRAs in 2020. Panelists will also explore the return of RMDs, after the CARES Act allowed owners of IRAs and employer-sponsored retirement plans to take coronavirus-related distributions and plan loans in 2020.
