The SECURE Act, passed in December 2019, changed the landscape on inherited IRAs. Although nearly three years have passed, not all donors and clients are aware of how the SECURE Act may affect their estate planning. Likewise, they may be unfamiliar with ways to counteract the restrictions of the SECURE Act and ways to address the financial needs of special-needs beneficiaries.

To unravel the SECURE Act and provide a roadmap through some of its landmines, join an informative presentation by Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs Partner Gordon B. Wright (past Chair of the firm’s Estate Planning Practice Group) and Wyatt’s Jeff Yussman, who chairs the firm’s special-needs planning practice within the Estate Planning Practice Group.
