DECATUR, GA, February 17, 2020: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on her law firm's website entitled "New SECURE Act Comes With Good News And Bad News For IRA Based Estate Plans." Ms. Collier provides a brief overview of both and suggests readers understand the details and nuances of the new law.
Collier states, "The new act is sure to affect you and/or your designated heirs in one way or another. And, as might be expected, the law has good news for some and bad news for others."
As Collier points out, "Prior to this year, owners of an IRA would be required to start taking distributions when they reached 70 ½ years of age. That has now been extended to age 72, unless you turned 70 ½ in 2019. Then you are subject to the previous RMD."
"In addition," says Collier, "once you reached 70 ½ years of age, prior to the SECURE Act, you could not continue to contribute to your IRA or retirement account. Now, you can continue to make contributions.This is good news since so many seniors who have reached retirement age continue to work."
