Many provisions of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act went into effect in 2020, but the passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act last spring might have distracted some plan sponsors and confused them about new rules for required minimum distributions (RMDs). In addition, 2020 was a very active year for the Department of Labor (DOL). In 2021, more important provisions of the SECURE Act are effective.
Join PLANSPONSOR for a webinar in which industry sources will:
Review provisions of the SECURE Act;
Review new regulations and legislation that will affect retirement plan sponsors; and
Discuss steps to comply with new regulations and legislation.
