The SECURE Act: How it Changes Retirement and Estate Planning

There’s been quite a bit of buzz in the news recently about the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act that was just signed by the President. Specifically, our clients are hearing that it could negatively affect them and their retirement plans, retirement plan trusts, and IRA Inheritance Trusts™.

There is a lot to unpack here, but we want to assure you that while the SECURE Act changes retirement planning, specifically with how retirement accounts are taxed and affects required minimum distributions, it is not all bad. And there are still ways to protect everything you own and love.

Let’s discuss a few of the changes associated with this major law.

Meet Erika Newsome!

There is so much about growing up in California that Erika will always miss—the perfect weather, beautiful beaches, and scenic mountains that seem never-ending are just a few highlights that immediately spring to mind.

So why on earth did she want to get to Texas as fast as she could?

“You can’t match any of that stuff. It’s all so beautiful. But what people don’t know is that you’re spending most of your day in traffic. You also pay high taxes on everything, and the gas prices are too high,” Erika said with a laugh. “Everything is expensive, expensive, and expensive. I just really wanted a change from the California lifestyle.”

She added, “I wanted to venture out, and I can’t imagine going back.”
