5 Accumulation Trusts (5 Trusts, 86 Pages)

"... the game-changing problem is that except for the very limited specified categories of Eligible Designated Beneficiaries (EDBs), for deaths in 2020 or later, the existing estate plan will not work as it was intended. Plan benefits must now be distributed in 10 years rather than over the life expectancy of the designated beneficiary.
For clients who chose a conduit "see through" trust plan, expecting a stretched-out distribution over the beneficiary's life expectancy, that plan will no longer work. The conduit trust will force distributions to the beneficiary within 10 years of the plan participant's death.
For persons who died before the enactment of the law, the SECURE Act continues the existing distribution plan only for the lifetime of the designated beneficiary. Thereafter, the 10-year payout rule takes effect.
Going forward, the best planning alternative for a wide range of beneficiaries is the accumulation trust. Even though the plan funds must be paid to the trust within 10 years of the participant's death, the trust can provide for discretionary payouts for the beneficiary. This will allow more control over the timing of distributions, and withholding distributions from a spendthrift or creditor-concerned beneficiary...It is anticipated that many clients will consider changing a trust from a conduit trust to an accumulation trust to avoid a rapid forced payout of the plan funds."
