The new Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act might make it easier for small business owners to offer retirement plans. For many people, their work is the main place to find retirement savings tools and access retirement plans. The SECURE Act has been one of the largest overhauls of the United States retirement system in many years. The new legislation might make it easier for small business owners financial incentives to offer employees a plan.
Due to life expectancies increasing, some are choosing to continue to work longer. These two changes brought by the SECURE Act could be beneficial to those people. The Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act has been one of the largest overhauls of the retirement system in the U.S. in decades. Before the SECURE Act, savers were not allowed to make contributions to their Traditional IRA once they turned 70 ½. For those who retired before 70 ½, this rule might not have been as restrictive because they were no longer earning income.
The Secure Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act was passed in December 2019. It includes reforms to increase access to plans in the workplace and expand retirement savings. This legislation includes changes that can affect defined contribution plans, defined benefit plans, individual retirement accounts and 529 plans. The Secure Act went in to effect on January 1, 2020. It changed the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) requirements for inherited accounts and increased the age that you are required to start taking your RMD.
