Hurricane Sandy Relief

January 2013

Employees whose principal residence or place of employment was located in a county that has been declared a disaster area due to Sandy damage may qualify to get hardship distributions or loans under less stringent rules than normal.  This also applies to an employee’s spouse or dependent(s) whose principal residence or place of employment was located in such a county.  To qualify for this, the loan or hardship must be made on or after October 26, 2012 and no later than February 1, 2013.  Please contact your retirement plan carrier directly for more detailed information and assistance.
