IRS Issues Further Guidance Addressing
Special Coronavirus-Related Distribution Rules
On May 4, 2020, (after you received the Hardship notice and application) the IRS issued further guidance that prohibits the Plan from making Coronavirus Distributions from your benefits accrued before January 1, 2019 (from your Money Purchase Subaccount) unless you are older than 59 ½.
If you are younger than 59 ½ you may request a Coronavirus distribution from your profit-sharing subaccount only. We apologize for the confusion, frustration, or inconvenience this may have caused.
If you have already applied, please be aware that the trust fund office will only allow approval for Contributions from your Profit-Sharing Account, therefore your original distribution request may be different.
John Hancock Website You can check your balance on both accounts at the John Hancock website below or call them at: 1-800-249-3575.
