SECURE Act and CARES Act Update

On top of the accelerated enactment of the SECURE Act effective January 1, 2020, there is new legislation being passed now with even more rules affecting IRAs. With all the challenges Americans are facing due to the Coronavirus, relief for those affected is on the horizon. The Senate bill – Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) was passed unanimously by the Senate on Wednesday, March 25. The bill was then sent to the House who passed on Friday, March 27. The President immediately signed it into law Friday afternoon. Besides payments to individuals and increasing unemployment benefits, the bill also allows access to Qualified plans and IRAs without receiving an IRS early distribution penalty. The CARES Act also suspends RMDs from IRAs for the calendar year 2020.
