Kevne Sharpe, Kelly Collins and Marilyn pick up where Jason McBride and Bruce Larsen left off in last week’s podcast on The SECURE Act. In today’s podcast Kevne, Kelly, and Marilyn look at how the SECURE Act impacts women. Women live longer, enter the workforce later, and have retire with smaller IRAs. Some of the changes introduced by the SECURE Act give women more options to better their retirement accounts. Learn more in this episode.

What you need to know

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 distributions. Whether you come out ahead is based on your individual circumstances. The Presidential SECURE Act guide outlines the key retirement savings provisions. 

We’re also holding a free Taxes in Retirement class in Parker (PACE Center), Arvada (APEX Fieldhouse), and Windsor (Windsor Rec Center) on February 6th (6:30 pm) and February 8th (10:00 am).
