We are only halfway through 2020 and there are many legal changes abound! As you may know, in December 2019, Congress passed the SECURE Act, which went into effect in the beginning of 2020. As a result of this Act, there have been a number of changes that may impact your retirement accounts and financial strategies. Some of these notable changes include the following:
Additionally, the recently passed CARES Act permits eligible participants to take an early distribution of up to $100,000 from certain tax-advantaged retirement plans (including, but not limited to, 401ks, 403(b)s, and Traditional IRAs) during the year 2020 without incurring the 10% penalty typically imposed on such a withdrawal before the account owner is 59½. How these changes may affect you will depend on your individual circumstances, and we recommend speaking with your financial advisor or other tax professional. We are offering all our clients a complimentary call about how these changes may impact your existing estate plans or how an estate plan could benefit you. Email us at Office@thegellerlawgroup.com or call/text 703.687.6188 to set up your call. We are also conducting evening appointments.
