IRS Economic Impact Payments
As you may be aware, the IRS is in the process of providing Economic Impact Payments to eligible U.S. residents. To determine your eligibility and to find the most up-to-date and accurate information regarding these payments we encourage all members to visit the IRS Website.
Avoid scams related to economic impact payments: Remember, the IRS will not call, text you, email you or contact you on social media asking for personal or bank account information – even related to the economic impact payments. Also, watch out for emails with attachments or links claiming to have special information about economic impact payments or refunds.
COVID-19 (coronavirus) and Unemployment Benefits
Important update for IRA Accountholders & Beneficiaries
The CARES Act stimulus package recently signed into law contains several provisions that affect Financial Planning Rules and Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) rules for 2020. As part of this package, the RMDs for 2020 have been waived. Not only is this waiver for all employer plan and IRA owners, it also applies to beneficiaries of inherited accounts.
