Retirement Planning

Dedham Retirement Planning Attorney

Customized Solutions Tailored to Your Goals

It’s never too early to plan for retirement, even if it seems far away. This is because the sooner you save for retirement, the more financial stability you will have in your non-working years. As such, adults can significantly benefit from retirement planning with the help of an attorney.

Although it’s always a good idea to consult with a professional about your retirement plan on an annual basis at the very least, you will want to get in touch with your attorney right away if you:

  • Get a new job
  • Get married or divorced
  • Purchase or move into a new home
  • Have children
  • Become disabled
  • Get a raise or promotion
  • Experience a significant financial change
  • Want to become more involved in managing your retirement plan

Retirement planning is for everyone, no matter their income. It is a comprehensive process that encompasses long-term care planning, asset protection, and estate planning, among other elements, depending on your unique circumstances. As such, our Dedham retirement planning lawyer takes the time to listen to our clients' goals and evaluate their situation before crafting personalized strategies and solutions on their behalf. Retirement planning is a long-term goal-oriented process that should help you reach financial stability when you no longer work, so allow us to help you get there!

How The SECURE Act May Impact You

Effective January 1, 2020, the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act is intended to help workers of all ages save for their retirement while easing the administrative obligations for employers. To accomplish this objective, the SECURE Act changed several retirement account rules that may very well impact you, but for the better.

We highlight some key elements of the SECURE Act below:

  • Raises the required minimum distribution (RMD) age for IRAs and other qualified retirement accounts from 70 ½ to 72
  • Eliminates the age restriction for IRA contributions
  • Allows long-term, part-time employees to participate in 401(k) plans
  • Allows for penalty-free withdrawals of up to $5,000 per child for birth or adoption expenses from qualified plans
  • Allows withdrawals from tax-advantaged 529 accounts for student loan repayment, up to $10,000 a year
  • Expands lifetime income strategy options
  • Removes the stretch IRA provision and instead, require non-spouses to fully payout their inherited IRA within 10 years of the account holder’s death
  • Allows 401(k) plans to offer annuities

We encourage you to speak with our retirement planning attorney about how the SECURE Act specifically impacts you and your family, as every situation is different and requires effective legal counsel.

    Benefits of Retirement Planning

    • Contributions and investment gains are not taxable until they’re distributed

    • Serves as a safety net for unpredictable financial situations
