Craig Toberman recently spoke to InvestmentNews for their article about the comprehensive retirement savings legislation SECURE Act 2.0.
In Advisers Anticipate Retirement-planning Flexibility SECURE 2.0 Offers, author Mark Schoeff Jr. discusses how financial advisors and their clients are preparing for increased flexibility for retirement planning.
In the article, Craig Toberman discusses how 529 plans will be affected.
For instance, some advisers may have clients who are saving for their children’s college education with 529 plans. A discussion about those vehicles can now also encompass retirement thanks to SECURE 2.0. The bill allows for unused 529 funds to be transferred to a Roth IRA.
“It’s not fair if a child gets a scholarship and you’re not able to freely access the 529 balance,” said Craig Toberman, founder of Toberman Wealth. “They should be able to roll to an account with a similar tax structure.”
