Course Description

The SECURE Act, which was signed into law late last year, has several provisions that impact distribution rules for IRAs. Perhaps the change causing the most planning considerations is the new 10-year rule.

Under the SECURE Act, individuals who planned to use a “stretch” distribution strategy for individual retirement accounts (IRA) and defined contribution plan assets will need to rethink that strategy. As of the end of 2019, most non-spousal beneficiaries will be required to fully distribute inherited account balances by the end of the 10th year, following the death of the account owner.

We have been working on SECURE strategies for the last five months and beginning to better understand the ten year rule. The legislation includes many changes to retirement plans, however the most significant change for our estate planning clients is the elimination of the “stretch” IRA in favor of the “10-year rule.” This change will decrease wealth transfer and require estate plan updates.

Everyone needs to touch base with their clients on suggested improvements to their estate plans. The best way to continue to prepare for this seismic change is to join Bob Keebler in this updated Webinar where Bob will cover the following points:

  • Flowcharts, checklists and practical protocols to help you help your clients.
  • Urgent estate administration protocols and disclaimers for late 2019 deaths.
  • Best strategies available to your clients and how to avoid the five year rule.
  • The conduit trust RMD disaster and solutions – why most conduit trusts are now imprudent or worse.
  • Reformations and decanting to avoid a spendthrift disaster the latest thinking.
