Washington Insights – Summer 2019

June 7, 2019 | Jon Vogler

In this edition of Washington Insights, we examine the provisions of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act. Recently passed by the US House of Representatives, this is the most comprehensive retirement bill considered by Congress in more than a decade. We analyze the prospects for it to be adopted by the Senate, or alternatively reconciled with the Retirement Enhancement and Savings Act (RESA) — a similar bill in the Senate. We will then assess the likelihood of this legislation (as well as a second separate retirement bill) becoming law later this year.

Washington Insights – Spring 2019

March 22, 2019 | Jon Vogler

A new report from the Government Accountability Office (GAO) calls on federal regulators to clarify the rules regarding the transfers of unclaimed savings from employer-based 401(k) plans to the states.

In this edition of Washington Insights, we explore the findings and recommendations in the GAO report, as well as the unexpected manner in which accounts may be considered to be “abandoned” for purposes of some state laws on “escheatment” (i.e., forfeiture).
