The House Ways & Means Committee approved, on a bipartisan basis, H.R. 2954, the “Securing a Strong Retirement Act of 2021,” sometimes referred to as SECURE 2.0
SECURE 2.0 seeks to expand retirement plan coverage and increase retirement savings, through a variety of provisions. expanding automatic enrollment, increasing the age mandatory distributions are required to begin, and allowing a higher catch-up limit to apply at ages 62, 63, and 64 years. There are also provisions clarifying certain retirement plan rules and also revenue raisers.
