The Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act, signed into law on December 20, 2019, is the broadest piece of retirement legislation in recent history. Some of the changes will go into effect in 2020 and plan sponsors will need to immediately evaluate their retirement plans and make required updates.

Changes to defined contribution plan rules
Modifications to required minimum distribution rules
Expanding retirement plan access
New lifetime income options for defined contribution plans
Increased filing penalties
