Retirement Resources President and Investment Advisor, Dave Boike, highlights some of the changes that are part of the biggest change to the U.S. retirement system since 2006 and suggests readers meet with their financial advisors to find out how the new act is likely to affect their retirement plans.
Auburn Hills, MI — January 6, 2020— Dave Boike, President of Retirement Resources and co-author of The Ultimate Success Guide with Brian Tracy published a new blog post on the company website entitled, “Welcome To The Biggest Change To The U.S Retirement System Since 2006,” in which Mr. Boike lets readers know there are big changes that they need to be informed about.
Boke writes, “Happy New Year. Happy New Decade. And yes, welcome to a change in the U.S. Retirement system that will affect anyone who has a retirement account.” He adds, “It might be a happy change for some, but not for others.”
According to Boike, “On January 1, 2020, the recently passed Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act went into effect. And it will affect everyone who has a retirement account.” He states, “There are multiple changes that could affect account holders immediately, and for this reason you may want to schedule a meeting with your financial advisor.”
“For example,” says Boike, “the SECURE Act increases the Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) age to 72 from 70 ½ and applies to anyone who turns 70 ½ in 2020 or later. Also, if you don’t need income from your retirement plan or IRA accounts, the SECURE Act enables you to defer taxes from those accounts.” He confirms, “That means that if you want to work beyond the traditional retirement age, the later RMD age provides more time for retirement income planning.”
