The “SECURE” Act?

Congress is at it again. Changing the rules. The rules you’ve played by to set yourself up for financial security and peace of mind. New legislation is on the table to slash the tax and inheritance benefits of the
stretch IRA. Currently, your beneficiaries can stretch their required minimum distributions over their life expectancy, deferring tax payments and realizing a much higher overall inheritance. If this passes, they will be restricted to taking distributions over only 10 years. We’re keeping tabs on progress, and will inform you of
any changes.

For now, you can read all about the SECURE Act here >
