Congress Suspends Required Minimum Distributions
For 401(k)s And IRAs For 2020
The bipartisan COVID-19 stimulus bill just signed by President Trump includes welcome tax relief for retirees: The required minimum distribution rules for Individual Retirement Accounts and 401(k)s are waived for 2020. That means that instead of taking money out this year, retirees can keep their investments growing. The RMD waiver applies to 403(b) accounts, SEP IRAs, and SIMPLE IRAs. This is a repeat of the 2009 RMD holiday during the Great Recession.
The rules for who needed to take 2020 RMDs were already funky because of the SECURE ACT, passed in late December, which changed the age triggering RMDs from 70 ½ to 72, effective Jan. 1, 2020.




Coronavirus/COVID-19 Information for CWA Members

As the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect communities across the globe, CWA leaders are engaging with employers to ensure that they are providing CWA members with comprehensive safety and prevention measures in an environment that encourages open and free communication without fear of reprisal or negative impacts on pay or continued employment.

CWA's Health and Safety department has established a process for locals to report on what protections employers have put in place as well as for members to report any incidents of exposure or infection. If you have been exposed to COVID-19 or are experiencing symptoms consistent with infection, contact your healthcare provider immediately and follow reporting procedures established by your employer. Also notify your CWA Local or District as soon as possible.
