  • Retirement Assistance – Retirement plan withdrawals for COVID-19 affected individuals, access to plan loans, waiver of RMDs for 2020 and allowance for plan amendments.

  • Individual Assistance – 2020 tax recovery rebates for incomes up to $99,000 for singles and $198,000 for married couples.

  • Small Business Assistance – Paycheck protection program, loan assistance, loan forgiveness, employee retention credit and tax benefits.

Below is a link which will bring up a one page overview of these key provisions and FAQs related to each of the key highlights :


Also, many of our clients are small business owners. We have put together an 11-page guide called "The Small Business Owners Guide to the CARES Act". If you would like us to send you a copy or to someone else, please just let us know.
