On March 29, the House Ways and Means Committee unveiled HR 1994, or the SECURE (Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement) Act. This is a bipartisan bill, co-sponsored by Rep Ron Kind (D-Wi), ranking member Kevin Brady (R-Tx) and Mike Kelly, (R-Pa). On April 1, the Senate, in a similar move, introduced a companion bipartisan bill, RESA (the Retirement Enhancement and Savings Act). The proposed laws cover a lot of retirement issues, but the most far-reaching is a modification of the ‘Stretch’ IRA rules. Both proposals accelerate IRA distributions and accordingly, taxes on inherited IRAs for non-spouse beneficiaries.

The current rules allow a spouse to rollover their deceased spouse’s IRA and declare it their own as a ‘spousal IRA.’ This rule remained unchanged in the proposed legislation. At age 70 ½, the owner of an IRA must begin Required Minimum Distributions (RMD). One proposed change contained in the House bill is to increase the RMD age to age 72.
