Dixon Downey, Financial Planner at Reby Advisors, will host an educational webinar titled “The CARES Act Impact on Retirement Planning and Social Security” through the Weston Library on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 3:30pm.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a $2 trillion financial relief and stimulus package intended to reduce the financial hardship caused by the COVID-19 virus that has caused millions of businesses to close and tens of millions of Americans to file for unemployment benefits. In a 30-minute presentation, Downey will cover how the bill affects people investing for retirement, approaching retirement age or already retired.
Specifically, Downey will discuss how:
- Required Minimum Distributions (RMD) have been waived in 2020.
- 401(k) loan rules have been loosened.
- Coronavirus Related Distributions (CRD) from IRA and 401(k) accounts in 2020 offer tax flexibility and no 10% penalty for those under 59 ½.
- Social Security taxes such as FICA and SECA can be delayed for the employer.
- Charitable giving opportunities have been increased with higher adjusted grow income (AGI) thresholds which create opportunities for IRA accountholders.
In addition, Downey will discuss how The CARES Act and other recent changes in the law present new opportunities to minimize taxes through ROTH conversions, qualified charitable distributions (QCD) and other tax planning strategies. Webinar attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the presentation.
