  • Ability to take penalty-free coronavirus-related distributions (CRDs) of up to $100,000 in aggregate from IRAs and eligible retirement plans and repay the distributions within three years


  • Repeal of the age restriction for Traditional IRA contributions
  • Required minimum distributions (RMDs) to begin at age 72 instead of age 70½
  • More rapid payouts to non-spouse beneficiaries (with some exceptions)
  • An exception to the 10 percent early distribution penalty tax for qualifying births and adoptions
