SECURE Act Signed Into Law: Impact on Retirement Benefits in Employer-Sponsored Plans

Live Webinar: Thursday, April 2, 2020

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the practical impact the newly enacted SECURE Act has on retirement benefits in employer-sponsored plans.



President Trump has signed into law the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Act of 2019 (the SECURE Act), and while many provisions already took effect January 1, 2020, others kick in for later years.

Dubbed the most significant pension reform in more than a decade, the SECURE Act seeks to bolster coverage for American workers participating in employer-sponsored retirement benefits plans. It is expected to bring both new opportunities and challenges for plan sponsors.

Join us on April 2 for an all-new webinar where seasoned employee benefits attorneys from Katten will explain how the SECURE Act impacts retirement benefits in employer-sponsored plans.

After this webinar, you’ll understand the impact the SECURE Act has on:

  • 401(k) plan coverage for long-term part-time employees
  • Required minimum distributions, and distributions allowed under certain circumstances
  • Notice and contribution requirements for “safe harbor” 401(k) plans
  • The timing of amendments to nonelective contribution 401(k) safe harbor plans
  • Increased penalties for failing to file a Form 5500 or a Form 8955
  • Pooled employer plans—including elimination of the “one bad apple” rule for disqualifying a whole pooled employer plan
  • Lifetime income disclosures for defined contribution plans—an employer’s new obligation to provide participants with estimates of the monthly income they would receive if the balance was paid as a single life annuity or a joint survivor annuity
  • Small employer tax credits
