Presidential Wealth Management has been tracking the “Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement” Act, known as the SECURE Act since it was approved by the House in May. Congress added it to the year-end spending bill that was approved by the House on December 17th and by the Senate on December 19th. President Trump signed it on December 20th.
While it is called the SECURE Act, it is really a mixed bag of new regulations – some good and some bad. The main two aims of the legislation seem to be to encourage more retirement savings and to increase tax revenue the government derives from IRA distribution.
Jason McBride and Bruce Larsen pull out the magnifying glass and take a close look at the most significant changes and regulations. Here’s a spoiler: Jason is never a fan of increased regulation, but he finds some highlights in the Act.
