Retiring soon? Recent law changes may have an impact on your retirement savings

Posted by Admin Posted on Mar 05 2021

If you’re approaching retirement, you probably want to ensure the money you’ve saved in retirement plans lasts as long as possible. If so, be aware that a law was enacted in late 2019 that made significant changes to retirement accounts. For example, the SECURE Act repealed the maximum age for making traditional IRA contributions. Before 2020, traditional IRA contributions weren’t allowed once you reached age 70 1/2. An individual of any age can now make contributions, as long as he or she has compensation and is otherwise eligible. The required minimum distribution age was also raised from 70 1/2 to 72. These are only some of the changes. Feel free to contact us with any questions.
