I have several acquaintances who are retiring early because of the pandemic. You probably do, too. Retirement plans are just one more thing that have been thrown into flux due to COVID-19.
Some employers are offering early retirement incentives. Many Iowans are considering early retirement due to job challenges, health concerns, or other reasons. On top of that, temporary policy changes have made it easier for people to withdraw from their retirement accounts during 2020. You may have questions as you sort through your options.
A new 45-minute on-line workshop “Rethinking Your Retirement During COVID-19” from Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is designed to equip you to make informed retirement decisions during this turbulent time.
The free workshop is available at noon or 5 p.m. on both Tuesday September 29 and Thursday October 1, with more dates likely through the fall. Pre-registration is required. You’ll find the registration links at ISU Extension’s retirement resource page — scroll under the “Upcoming Events” section to find the session you wish to attend!
