      The CARES Act changed all of the rules about 401(k) withdrawals. Here's everything you need to know - Cnet

      In addition to giving Americans a one-time stimulus payment and paving the way for expanded unemployment benefits, the CARES Act has temporarily changed the rules about withdrawing money from retirement accounts. You can now take penalty-free withdrawals from your IRA or 401(k) up to $100,000 without facing the usual early withdrawal fees. 

      The CARES Act allows you to withdraw up to $100,000 from your retirement account -- penalty-free -- until the end of 2020. So far, relatively few Americans have taken advantage of this new exemption: The Investment Company Institute reports that less than 3% of retirement plan owners made early withdrawals so far this year.
