Many advisors have heard that the SECURE Act is the mostimportant retirement legislation in over 10 years. Hard to arguewith that — besides having a long name* that sounds like it wascreated after the acronym was, SECURE is packed with details, fromthe simple to potentially industry-changing ones.

|

To add to the confusion, Congress passed it in a last-minutedeal near the end of December 2019. So quite a few people weretaken by surprise when some of SECURE's provisions went into effectimmediately on January 1, 2020.

Clients are worried and confused, unsure what parts apply tothem now and what can be dealt with later. The impact ofone wrong step could be huge.

It stands to reason that advisors who learn as much as they canare adding value to the services they offer clients. And they'rebetter situated to realize and take advantage ofany new opportunities changes in regulation might offer. Are thereopportunities? You tell me.
