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

00:11:03.810 --> 00:11:06.160
