A Path Forward for Your 401k
On December 20th, 2019, one of the most significant pieces of retirement legislation in recent history was passed. The SECURE Act draws from a wide array of bipartisan bills and seeks to make it easier for businesses to offer retirement plans, and for individuals to save for retirement.
The legislation was incorporated into Division O of the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020, approved by the House and Senate, and signed into law by the president.
While there are several areas that this new legislation impacts, how do benefit providers navigate these new provisions and determine the best way to improve their retirement plan benefit offerings?
This webinar will discuss the impact of the SECURE Act:
- The ability for unrelated employers to join a pooled employer plan
- Significantly increases the small employer pension plan startup tax credit up to $5,000
- Gives business owners more flexibility to help guide their decision-making
- Simplifies the 401(k) safe harbor rules
- Expands portability of lifetime income options
- Allows long-term, part-time workers to participate in 401(k) plans
- Allows plans adopting by the filing due date to be treated as in-effect as of the
close of the year
- Provides a fiduciary safe harbor for selection of a lifetime income provider
- Modifies the treatment of custodial accounts on termination of 403(b) plans
- Extends the current required minimum distribution requirements to age 72
- Requires disclosures regarding lifetime income
- Modifies the nondiscrimination rules to protect longer-service participants
