Plan Terminations will cause leakage

If you look at the stock market, you wouldn’t know unemployment is 10% and that 180,000 Americans died.

Small and medium-sized businesses have born the brunt of the closings mandate by state governments around the country, while the Wal Marts, Home Depots, and Targets have remained open.

The problem with business closings is that we are starting to see the temporary closings become permanent for many businesses. The problem with the 401(k) plan terminations of these shuttered businesses is that it will incite distributions to terminated participants who need the money now and will not roll over to an IRA. The problem is that by cashing or retirement benefits now, it will only exacerbate the retirement crisis in this country.
