CARES Act Infographic

To help combat the coronavirus pandemic and shore up the economy, Congress recently passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. It’s a massive, $2 trillion stimulus package – the largest in American history.1 

This historic legislation contains benefits for almost every American, and some of the provisions are especially important for retirees.  We have created a special infographic that summarizes some of the act’s most high points.  Please study it carefully, and then let us know if you have any questions.
