Did you hear the news? President Trump signed an executive order today that could affect your retirement in the future.
The order looks at two different areas:
Required Minimum Distributions (RMD’s)
Make Work-Based Retirement Programs More Affordable For Small-Businesses
With the first area, the goal is to basically allow retirees the option to put away money in their accounts for a longer time, than the current law of age 70.5.
The second area is a push by the Trump White House to increase the number of businesses that have retirement programs, with one measure to essentially allow small businesses to join collectively and offer plans.
A statistic put forth by the Trump White House shows that only 53% of businesses with fewer than 100 employees even offer workplace retirement plans, versus 90% of larger-sized businesses with more than 100 employees offering a retirement plan for their employees.
