Coping with Financial Issues of COVID-19 - Part 4

Hope this week’s post finds you safe, healthy and vigilant as we work together to “flatten the curve” and make progress back to a more normal lifestyle.

This week there is yet another wrinkle to my Zoom Room access thanks to creative hackers finding ways to enter some sessions uninvited and cause deliberate interference. An email was sent out at the beginning of the week announcing the need for both passwords and “waiting rooms” going forward. The invites should have the password embedded in the meeting room link but still make note of it just in case. Upon entering you will be placed in a waiting room until I grant access. Look for a welcoming “chat” from me acknowledging your presence and in the event that I am already talking with someone, a request to wait until I can finish. This will help maintain privacy and if you can’t wait please send me a text so I can follow up with you. I will hold open Q&A sessions each Tuesday and Thursday for right now from 1:00-3:00.

New Items:

I.  Post 9/11 GI Bill Benefits- Active Duty Since 9/11/2001

II.  CORE Act Relief – Should You Use Your Retirement Plan?

III.  Not All Retirement Advice is Good, Especially for Federal/Military Members.
