week ending September 11th, 2020
The distractions of this year turned attention away from the big news of the passage of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act. But, big changes from that legislation are coming. For example, pooled employer plans (PEPs) will come to market January 1, and plan sponsors will need to start counting hours to prepare to include part-time employees in retirement plans. The IRS has recently issued some guidance about SECURE Act compliance. In this edition of PLANSPONSOR Weekend, you will find information to help you with your obligations related to the SECURE Act. Be well.
