The Impact of the CARES Act on Individuals

/ April 9, 2020 April 9, 2020

On March 27, President Trump signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) into law. This Act comes as a continued response to the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) crisis and is intended to provide economic relief to employers and individuals through $2.2 trillion in federal funding. The CARES Act supports businesses by providing paycheck protection, new loans and current loan forgiveness and provides economic stabilization for severely impacted industries. As the number of critically ill COVID-19 patients surges, the Act supports the health care system by providing financial assistance for medical supplies and coverage, as well as expanded telehealth and COVID-19 testing provisions. For individuals, the CARES Act provides direct monetary payments to Americans and several key changes to employee benefits.
