Will the SECURE Act 2.0 Affect You?

Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act 2.0

In 2019, the US Government voted on and passed a spending bill to help Americans save for retirement.  The bill was called the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act.  Since then, there has been several updates discussed by congress and recently put into a revised act called the SECURE Act 2.0.  The SECURE Act 2.0 was just passed at the end last year as part of the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2023 and signed by the President December 29, 2022. This is the enactment date and the effective date for some provisions of the Act. Other provisions will become effective over the next several years.   How does this affect you?  There are several updates like raising the minimum age for required minimum distributions, raising catch-up contributions, allowing for emergency withdrawals, matching student loan payments, expanded coverage for part-time workers and more.  Out of the 4,100 pages of the SECURE Act 2.0, there is a lot to unpack in SECURE 2.0 and several provisions requiring clarification and/or interpretation while others requiring system updates. 

We are reviewing the SECURE Act 2.0 in more detail and putting together a summary of the provisions by their effective timelines as well as a list of the top provisions we believe will have the highest impact for you, as our clients.  We will be sending this out via email in the next couple weeks.

While there are several provisions that may benefit you, we believe SECURE 2.0 will initially raise more questions than answers for retirement plan sponsors and individual investors. If you have ANY questions about how this affects your employer-sponsored plan or you individually, please feel free to reach out to our team – we are always here to support you.
