The SECURE Act (Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement) was signed into law on December 20, 2019, and is effective for deaths occurring in 2020 and beyond.

Prior to the SECURE Act, upon the death of an IRA or other plan participant, designated beneficiaries had to take distributions over their life expectancy. This permitted the desirable “stretch out” planning for beneficiaries, particularly children and grandchildren. If there was no designated beneficiary, distributions had to be made by the end of the fifth year following the death of the participant if he or she had not reached his or her required beginning date, or over the participant’s remaining actuarial life expectancy as if he or she had not died if the participant had reached his or her required beginning date. 

The SECURE Act creates new categories of beneficiaries, and limits the opportunity to take distributions over one’s life expectancy to only certain beneficiaries.
