How Covid-19 Impacts Retirement Plans

“There are dreamers and there are planners; the planners make their dreams come true.”


Were you prepared for retirement and now have concerns in regard to how Covid-19 affects those plans? While the CARES Act serves to support individuals, businesses and sustain employment during this current pandemic, it may have an impact certain retirement plans in 2020.


The CARES ACT consists of various provisions that may alter current retirement plan rules. With retirement funds in mind, some fees may be waived, such as the 10% penalty for early withdrawal. Any withdrawal is still subject to tax, but it will be spread over a three-year period instead. In addition, required minimum distributions or RMDs from many retirement plans (e.g. IRA, 401(k),403(b), and others) have been officially suspended in 2020.

Previously, RMDs had mandatory withdrawals, where at a specific age, they were required to be collected from certain retirement accounts. This withdrawal would usually begin at the age of 70 ½. However, now while new laws are being put into effect and information is changing daily, it is important to become familiar with the loan resources available.
