Death Of The Stretch IRA

  • How it used to work
  • The way it will work starting in 2020
  • How it will impact these types of accounts over time

A Critical Reminder

If you have a Beneficiary Designated IRA, and the original account owner died prior to the end of 2019, you can continue using the old rules. The new rules only apply if the original IRA owner died in 2020 or after.  

You will not be required to accelerate the distribution of your account.
