Retirement Plan Options

The recently passed CARES Act provides access to retirement funds due to COVID-19. Participants are eligible to take an early withdrawal or loan from a Prudential Retirement savings account if they meet one of the following requirements:

  • Participant, participant spouse or dependent is diagnosed with COVID-19 by a test approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • Participant has personally experienced adverse financial consequences as a result of reduced work hours, being quarantined, furloughed, or laid off; or if unable to work due to lack of child care or business closures related to the coronavirus pandemic.

Early withdrawals related to COVID-19 would not be subject to the usual 10% penalty, and loan amounts have increased to $100,000, if needed.
