Covering CARES and COVID; Summarizing SECURE: 2020 is unprecedented. The pandemic has led to retirement plan relief by Congress and various governmental agencies. Even before the COVID outbreak, the SECURE Act set in motion significant changes to the design and administration of retirement plans. It has been tough to keep up with the volume of changes. This session will discuss the SECURE Act, passed in December, 2019. What we know and what we still need guidance on. It will also discuss the CARES Act and subsequent guidance on dealing with the economic fallout of the pandemic. How do all of these measures change the landscape of how retirement plans are created, administered and potentially frozen or terminated. Finally, we’ll discuss the changes or guidance still needed to ensure the stability and impact of the private retirement plan system.
