About the Program

The SECURE Act made many changes to the rules that govern retirement plans, including a new higher age for required minimum distributions (age 72) and greater flexibility for 401(k) plans.  This session will examine the new rules, focusing on planning strategies to cope with the new requirement that most (but not all) inherited retirement accounts will have to be liquidated within ten years after the death of the account owner.
