Coronavirus and CARES Act Resource Center for Plan Sponsors

ICMA-RC has a dedicated Plan Sponsor Coronavirus and CARES Act Resource Center with multiple resources to assist you and help keep you informed about financial developments related to COVID-19 and the CARES Act.

Check out the Resource Center where you can learn more about the CARES Act provisions related to retirement plans, online enrollment, education resources, and industry studies related to the effect of the COVID-19 on local and state government workforces. In the Resource Center, you will also see a link to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resource Center for participants.

Also, ICMA-RC has developed a CARES Act Withdrawal Form and Self-Certification Form for all coronavirus-related disbursements (CRDs). If your plan elected these provisions, the forms are available to plan administrators through EZLink and to participants through Account Access.

Please note: Before any coronavirus-related disbursements may take place, the plan will need to adopt the CARES Act option to the plan.
