00:00:02.410 --> 00:00:05.559

Ryan Burklo: Hello, everybody! Welcome back to Beer and Money. I'm. Ryan, Burklo



00:00:05.820 --> 00:00:07.340

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: and I'm. Alex. Collins.



00:00:07.400 --> 00:00:15.430

Ryan Burklo: and on today's episode. We're going to be talking about 3 changes for your finances to consider under the new secure 2.0 act.



00:00:16.500 --> 00:00:18.470

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: yayy legislation.



00:00:19.420 --> 00:00:22.460

Ryan Burklo: But before we dive into that here, Alex, what are we drinking today.



00:00:22.930 --> 00:00:41.629

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: Well, i'm i'm bummed cause again this is you drinking it because i'm still feeling a little bit under the weather. But we're drinking. Nature calls. Ipa comes from 10 barrel brewing clocks in it 6 and a half, 6 and a half percent alcohol only 40 I use.



00:00:41.880 --> 00:00:43.870

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: So so what do you think R.



00:00:44.410 --> 00:00:45.989

Ryan Burklo: It's. It's definitely a light.



00:00:46.050 --> 00:00:48.070

Ryan Burklo: Ipa.



00:00:48.420 --> 00:00:50.839

Ryan Burklo: It's refreshing, so it's kind of like



00:00:52.030 --> 00:00:53.370

Ryan Burklo: it's a great



00:00:53.800 --> 00:01:01.660

Ryan Burklo: beer when you when it's hot outside. I can envision drinking this and not having to worry about. Okay, if I have 2, that that's a lot of alcohol like



00:01:01.680 --> 00:01:13.269

Ryan Burklo: right like at 6 and a half percent alcohol. It's a it's just a drinkable beer that you can drink and not have to worry about that that aspect. It's it's not your standard northwest. Ipa, where



00:01:13.330 --> 00:01:14.870

Ryan Burklo: you know, after 2 beers.



00:01:15.050 --> 00:01:18.950

Ryan Burklo: Normally, you can be feeling that decent amount. So



00:01:19.430 --> 00:01:39.069

Ryan Burklo: this one is it's solid. It's a drinkable one. Let me put it that way for those of you who don't like Ipas. This might be a good starter to have. If if you look at that's all they're offering at the at the spot you're at. So, in terrible timbale brewing they make some solid bears there so definitely check them out. If I were to rate this, i'm probably giving it just because



00:01:39.080 --> 00:01:43.060

Ryan Burklo: the ips that you and I tend to enjoy. I'm gonna give this a 6. We tend to like the



00:01:43.080 --> 00:01:46.450

Ryan Burklo: the more happier ones, so i'm going to give it a 6 out of 10



00:01:47.380 --> 00:01:49.409

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: cool. Well, I look forward to



00:01:49.430 --> 00:01:52.759

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: to trying it when i'm a little bit better, and we'll have



00:01:52.790 --> 00:01:56.489

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: a rating from me coming up in a future podcast.



00:01:57.520 --> 00:02:11.180

Ryan Burklo: So let's talk about so so secure 2.0 act. There's there's a lot of changes, you know, for those that listen to this our episodes. They they tend to be not close to retirement or in retirement. And so we're, leaving a little bit



00:02:11.190 --> 00:02:18.570

Ryan Burklo: of the retirement factors out into like required minimum distributions. And that kind of fun stuff. We're going to be talking about



00:02:18.700 --> 00:02:21.410

Ryan Burklo: changes to consider



00:02:21.450 --> 00:02:27.979

Ryan Burklo: pre retirement that that might make sense for you to do, and it might be some may not even be changes.



00:02:28.170 --> 00:02:32.910

Ryan Burklo: You get to do it. It's changes that your employer gets to do, and maybe you get to take advantage of that.



00:02:33.400 --> 00:02:36.990

Ryan Burklo: And the big one in that is the the changes to 4. One. K. Alex.



00:02:37.060 --> 00:02:41.339

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: Yeah. Well, and you these are things that you might want to



00:02:41.690 --> 00:02:46.420

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: bring up with your employer and say, hey, are we going to get an opportunity to do this. That's a great point.



00:02:46.570 --> 00:02:50.719

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: Great point. So some of the changes inside of K



00:02:50.900 --> 00:02:51.900

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: are



00:02:52.220 --> 00:02:54.390

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: that there



00:02:54.740 --> 00:02:56.659

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: you you now have



00:02:56.680 --> 00:02:57.600

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: again



00:02:57.630 --> 00:03:03.120

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: assuming that the employer adopts this, the ability for the employer match



00:03:03.220 --> 00:03:04.670

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: to be Roth.



00:03:05.200 --> 00:03:17.550

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: And now you have to pay the taxes on the dollars they could put in the dollars have to be immediately vested. So there's some components there that may or may not be in your control. However.



00:03:17.710 --> 00:03:19.340

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: the ability to have



00:03:19.420 --> 00:03:21.970

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: all of the dollars that go into your 401



00:03:22.000 --> 00:03:36.679

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: be Roth, or most of the dollars that go into your K. Be Roth, depending upon some of the structure of your K is is a definite advantage in in terms of the ability to pick and choose, and how you want to go about it for your own personal situation.



00:03:36.810 --> 00:03:46.549

Ryan Burklo: It's a decent change, because for those of you who have the option to put in money into a Roth. K. Your employer was that if you had an employee employee match.



00:03:47.780 --> 00:03:54.149

Ryan Burklo: the match always went to the pre-tax side, and so now that you have the option, or the employer might



00:03:54.230 --> 00:04:02.629

Ryan Burklo: do the Roth match. So that's that a a definite thing to consider when we're talking about taxation over money today and in the future.



00:04:03.730 --> 00:04:07.730

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: Yeah. So there's a couple of other components that are are



00:04:07.970 --> 00:04:12.700

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: rothifying the 4. One, K. The first is.



00:04:12.950 --> 00:04:15.989

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: there's an an emergency savings component



00:04:16.019 --> 00:04:20.799

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: that can be up to $2,500 that you can have



00:04:21.890 --> 00:04:23.210

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: reduced



00:04:23.860 --> 00:04:27.890

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: barriers to access in the event of emergency.



00:04:27.950 --> 00:04:34.820

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: Now the language inside of the bill is really vague here, so you want to make sure that you're working with



00:04:34.830 --> 00:04:52.900

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: your employer. You want to make sure you're working with the 4, one K provider, your Cpa, your tax advisor to go ahead and make sure that you understand the ins and outs of of how this is going to be structured, and what what is considered an emergency. And what isn't those types of questions.



00:04:52.910 --> 00:04:55.650

But there's going to be more access



00:04:55.770 --> 00:05:00.309

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: inside of this specific type of structure



00:05:00.620 --> 00:05:03.390

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: for emergency access.



00:05:04.560 --> 00:05:18.679

Ryan Burklo: Yeah, it, you know this is I I I think you know the Go units, as Government has realized that a lot of people don't have an emergency fund set up, but they do have money in their K. So I think they're They're allowing people to kind of utilize the K.



00:05:19.150 --> 00:05:29.799

Ryan Burklo: A. Version of it to be an emergency fund depending on their definition of emergency. I I think that is a slippery slope. So you know, from a financial planning standpoint for those listeners here



00:05:29.820 --> 00:05:34.180

Ryan Burklo: like, really consider this: I would not for the most part, advise



00:05:34.270 --> 00:05:35.720

Ryan Burklo: you to limit



00:05:35.910 --> 00:05:41.200

Ryan Burklo: the amount of money you have access to in your savings account, because this new rule applies.



00:05:41.230 --> 00:05:45.749

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: but we wanted to make sure we bring it out and let you guys know about it



00:05:45.870 --> 00:05:53.609

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: truthfully, for most of our clients $2,500, which is the maximum contributions I like. This is not



00:05:53.710 --> 00:05:59.480

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: something that is going to replace emergency reserve for the vast majority of our clients.



00:06:00.610 --> 00:06:10.580

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: and the the last component of the changes to to 4. One. K. That you and I are talking about. There's there are a host of changes, and this is by no means an exhaustive list



00:06:10.660 --> 00:06:15.110

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: is that for certain folks the higher income, echelon folks.



00:06:15.290 --> 00:06:21.990

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: if you exercise the catch up contributions that are employee contributions.



00:06:23.060 --> 00:06:26.489

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: These are going to be mandatory to be Roth



00:06:27.290 --> 00:06:29.110

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: in certain circumstances.



00:06:30.550 --> 00:06:37.140

Ryan Burklo: Yeah. So th those are the 3 changes that we're speaking about into for for today, at least for the K.



00:06:37.520 --> 00:06:41.530

Ryan Burklo: Another thing. The second piece that we wanted to make sure we bring up



00:06:41.560 --> 00:06:45.439

is the ability to actually convert



00:06:45.830 --> 00:06:49.759

Ryan Burklo: any money that's in a 5 to 9 account to a Roth.



00:06:50.610 --> 00:07:07.520

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: Yeah. And so we we originally got the ability to convert traditional Iras to Roth Iras. We then got the ability to convert certain dollars inside of K's from traditional to Roth. We're now getting, albeit very limited



00:07:07.750 --> 00:07:26.009

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: ability to convert 5 to $9 into Roth. There's a lifetime cap of 35,000. You have to have the 5 to 9 plan for 15 years. There's some restrictions and some rules around distributions. But again.



00:07:26.140 --> 00:07:27.860

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: more flexibility.



00:07:28.300 --> 00:07:34.580

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: more flexibility equals better ability and better access to planning and different techniques.



00:07:36.290 --> 00:07:47.099

Ryan Burklo: and then number 3. They want to talk about. Here we're, we're labeling it other benefits. And and the first one is a student loan match. Right? So there's an availability for your employer to match



00:07:47.310 --> 00:07:54.160

Ryan Burklo: your student loans into the retirement plans. If you're putting X amount of dollars towards student loans, they will be able to match that.



00:07:54.820 --> 00:08:00.629

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: And so this is a way for employers to be able to help



00:08:00.800 --> 00:08:03.010

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: employees



00:08:03.930 --> 00:08:22.159

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: help employees by allowing the ability for employers to put dollars into a qualified retirement plan if they're paying back student loans. And so it's designed as a way to theoretically not have to choose between paying back loans and saving for retirement.



00:08:22.170 --> 00:08:36.740

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: We'll see what actually winds up coming out of this, how many employers adopt it? It's just an additional benefit now that employers can offer. Yours may or may not adopt this, and most of these rules like



00:08:36.750 --> 00:08:54.309

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: It'll be 6 months to 2 years before they're They're fully adopted, anyway, and then the last component that falls into this other benefits is the ability for both set Iras and simple Iras to also have Roths.



00:08:54.320 --> 00:09:05.979

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: And so again, it's the the further rothification of the retirement system. And again, it just provides extra flexibility where we think that this may apply for



00:09:06.020 --> 00:09:09.820

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: for you. You, our listeners, who are



00:09:10.510 --> 00:09:26.449

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: our our listenership, is, if you have a startup, and you're looking to go ahead and create a retirement plan. This now provides extra flexibility and extra choices that you can make. If you've got a spouse. There's extra choices inside of



00:09:26.460 --> 00:09:30.770

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: steps and simple structures that that you didn't have before.



00:09:31.710 --> 00:09:49.149

Ryan Burklo: And then last we wanted to take a quick note and just let you know that there was a lot of talk leading up to this, that that the they might change the ability or change. You know how the possibility of doing a back door. Roth Ira conversion. They did not check touch that. So it's actually still available.



00:09:49.160 --> 00:09:56.010

Ryan Burklo: I know many of our clients utilize that. We want to make sure that we were bringing that up for our clients as well as for any of our listeners here.



00:09:56.190 --> 00:10:06.610

Ryan Burklo: So those are the 3 changes that you know you should really take into consideration under the new, to secure 2 act which takes us to the question of the day outs.



00:10:06.820 --> 00:10:11.380

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: Our question today is, how can you utilize? Secure 2.0



00:10:11.620 --> 00:10:13.039

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: to your own benefit?



00:10:14.420 --> 00:10:26.220

Ryan Burklo: So head over to beer and money.net, and there's a spot at the top. It says, Contact us where you can either answer that question of the day, or if anything bubbled up from today's conversation that you have questions on. It's a great way to communicate with us.



00:10:26.300 --> 00:10:30.030

Ryan Burklo: If you got any value out of this, if you, if you were



00:10:30.380 --> 00:10:42.609

Ryan Burklo: didn't know about some of these changes you're like. Oh, I didn't think about that, and that that does pertain to my my personal situation. Then share it. My guess is, there's probably someone else that you know that might have similar thoughts and ideas and and questions there.



00:10:43.480 --> 00:10:58.079

Alex Collins, ChFC, CFP: A. As always, anything that is tax related, we're we're providing some insight and some strategies. We highly recommend that you consult your tax advisor. As this is not tax advice, and should not be relied upon as tax advice
