Seminar Overview

In December 2019, Congress passed the SECURE Act that encompasses the most extensive changes in retirement plans since the Pension Protection Act of 2006. This seminar will address the changes in the SECURE Act and what is currently known. In addition, attendees will enhance their knowledge of IRA basics to address some of the more complex IRA issues that their financial organizations may handle. This is a specialty session; some previous IRA knowledge is assumed. The instructor uses real-world exercises to help participants apply information to job-related situations.
