Benefits of SECURE Act for Retirement Savers

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.
