Topic # 1: How The SECURE Act Changes Retirement (and Other) Planning
On December 20, 2019, President Donald Trump signed into law the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act, ushering in the most significant direct changes to the laws for retirement accounts since the Pension Protection Act of 2006. The 'headline' from the SECURE Act is its changes to the 'stretch' rules for designated beneficiaries, but that's far from the only change that will impact advisors and their clients. The SECURE Act also changes the starting age for RMDs, eliminates the age limit for Traditional IRA contributions, creates a new exception to the 10% early distribution penalty, eliminates burdensome rules that prevented wider-spread adoption of MEPSs, reversed changes to the so-called "Kiddie Tax" made by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and much more!
Topic # 2: Advanced Roth Planning; How to Squeeze More Juice Out of the Tax Lemon
A core concept of tax planning is to pay taxes at the lowest rates. But what will your clients' tax rates be when they need to access their retirement funds? That unknown is a major risk for many retirees, but it's a risk that a Roth IRA conversion can help to reduce and/or eliminate. In this session attendees will gain an understanding of critical Roth conversion rules, as well as some of the advanced conversion strategies that practitioners can use to help clients transition as much money as possible from tax-deferred accounts to tax-free accounts at the lowest cost.
