This webinar will discuss the major SECURE 2.0 provisions affecting retirement plans, provide guidance and clarifications (where possible), and point out the tips and traps in areas where administrators and tax professionals need to beware until the Internal Revenue Service and Department of Labor provide additional guidance.


On Dec. 29, 2022, President Biden signed legislation enacting SECURE 2.0, which significantly expands the effect and adds to 2019's SECURE Act (now called SECURE 1.0). It seems there is something for everyone in SECURE 2.0. Young workers, part-time workers, retired taxpayers, and small businesses all stand to benefit from this recent legislation. While SECURE 1.0 increased the age for required minimum distributions from 70 ½ to 72, SECURE 2.0 went further, increasing the RMD age to 73 in 2023 for taxpayers not 72 years old by the last day of 2022.

For eligible businesses with 50 employees or less, the new Act offers a credit for 100 percent of the costs of establishing a retirement plan. Long-term part-time employees are eligible to participate in 401(k) plans, and payments on eligible student loans can be used to determine an employer matching contribution allocation. Besides the numerous changes made by SECURE 2.0, the greatest complications could be the varying effect dates. And while the proponents of SECURE 2.0 lauded its many benefits, those benefits come at the cost of substantial complications and the continued absence of much-needed guidance from the IRS and the DOL on changes made by SECURE 1.0. All tax professionals need to understand the sweeping changes made by this legislation, who it affects, the varying effective dates, and how to handle the areas that are unclear.

Listen as our panel of retirement plan experts reviews SECURE 2.0 provisions, including who is affected, when each provision is effective, and areas where additional guidance is needed.
