Webinar Estate Planning for IRAs and 401Ks after the SECURE Act
Webinar - Once Registered you will receive a zoom invite 3 days out from the live event. About the Presentation: Commentators appear to be almost uniform in proclaiming the demise of so-called stretch IRAs and other defined contribution plan benefits, including 401Ks, after the SECURE Act was signed by the President in late December of 2020. Before 2020, designated beneficiaries could receive benefits from IRAs and 401Ks over their entire lifetimes. The new rule, however, is that, with certain exceptions (including a surviving spouses), the IRA and 401K benefits must all be paid out within 10 years of the account owner's death. For example, a child having a 30-year life expectancy, who previously could have received the IRA or 401K benefits over 30 years, must now fully withdraw the benefits within 10 years of the account owner’s death. Further, not only must all of the tax on IRA and 401K benefits be paid much earlier than previously, but the income tax rate payable on the benefits will likely be much higher than it was before, because the income will typically now be bundled into the recipient’s or recipients’ peak earning years. This presentation will explain the SECURE Act, and will examine various strategies for minimizing the Act’s punitive impact on IRAs and 401Ks.
