The $2 trillion coronavirus bill, known as the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, has been signed into law. The main question most Americans are asking is do I qualify for a stimulus check? We will get into that detail of course. We will also dive into the bill’s additional changes that may impact your personal financial situation including updates to student loan repayments, retirement account distributions, and unemployment benefits.
Rather than asking you to read the 880 page bill, we thought it’d be best to summarize the changes below.
Stimulus Payment Details (Checks to Americans)
Updates to Student Loan Repayment
Updates to Retirement Plans
Updates to Charitable Contributions
Updates for Small Businesses
We hope we saved you some time and provided greater clarity around the recent stimulus package.
We truly believe that now, more than ever, is the time to start a financial plan or revisit the plan that’s collecting dust on your shelf. It’s time to put intention behind the money you’ve saved.
