Since the SECURE Act arrived in December of 2019, planners have been awaiting regulations to clarify a variety of open issues. Proposed regulations were released in late February, ending the long wait. Although the proposed regulations answer many questions, they also raise a few new wrinkles, and include some perhaps surprising provisions. While we can’t know what form final regulations will take or when they will be issued, attorneys and other advisors will want to examine the proposed regulations and consider how best to advise clients given this new information. Given their length (275 pages total), and the number of internal and external cross-references, many practitioners may wish they had a compass or a map to help guide them through these important proposed rules. And who better to help us navigate this treacherous new territory than Natalie Choate.

Join us Friday, March 25, 2022, for a live webinar trip through the important provisions of the proposed regulations, exclusively for InterActive Legal subscribers.

  • When is it necessary to take required minimum distributions and how are they calculated?
  • When must the plan assets be distributed in their entirety?
  • How do these proposed regulations clarify the rules relating to “eligible designated beneficiaries” and “see-through trusts”?
  • What to make of the proposed rules regarding powers of appointment?

Answers to these and other questions lie just around the corner!

*This webinar includes an All-Access Pass Q&A session with Natalie Choate, exclusively for InterActive Legal subscribers. The All-Access Pass Q&A session will take place during the last 30 minutes of the webinar to allow a longer time for questions to be posed, discussed, and answered.
