Formerly a go-to strategy for estate planning, the “stretch” IRA met its end in late 2019 when the SECURE Act mandated that any inherited IRAs must be emptied within a ten-year period. For you or your clients searching for alternatives, consider options including Roth IRAs, Charitable Remainder UNITrusts (CRUT), traditional trusts, and how life insurance can benefit heirs over time. Contemplate Section 1035 of the Internal Revenue Code to enact the strategic exchange of non-qualified annuities to achieve a stretch and the role of beneficiary designations in planning.
