Loans and withdrawals

Stimulus package helps provide economic relief

The Coronavirus, Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) is designed to help provide economic relief for individuals, families and businesses. It includes key retirement plan provisions that creates a new COVID-19-related distribution option, expands the availability of loans from qualified plans and grants a temporary waiver of Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs).

These changes; however, are not mandatory so your employer will need to decide if they will implement the changes for your retirement plan.

Carefully weigh if accessing money in your account is right for you

If you are facing a job loss or other economic hardship during this time, you may be tempted to access the money you have in your retirement account. But before you move ahead, it's important to understand and carefully weigh the potential advantages and disadvantages and evaluate not only how it impacts your current situation, but how it will impact your future retirement.

Not all plans offer loans, withdrawals, or provisions through the CARES Act, so check with your employer or log into your account for more specific information.
