2020 Begins - Retirement Era Ends January 2020

In this episode, we spend some time discussing some updates involving the SECURE Act, a new piece of regulation involving the retirement system here in the US. The end of the Stretch IRA will likely result in the need for some people to review estate plans and beneficiary designations on retirement accounts. 

We also spend some time discussing the failure of yet another large pension plan and why this could be a significant indicator for the road ahead.
