  CARES Act: Retirement Plan Changes  
  The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law on March 27, 2020. This wide-ranging effort to combat the economic upheaval created by the COVID-19 outbreak gives individuals options to utilize retirement plans and Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) to help deal with the economic impact of the pandemic.

Taxpayers who are under age 59 ½ are able to take up to $100,000 from their qualified plan or IRA without a 10% penalty and all taxpayers are able to borrow up to $100,000 from their qualified plan. The new tax law also waives required minimum distributions in 2020 so taxpayers are not forced to take distributions when account values have declined.
