Friday episodes are all about the coronavirus and your money. There’s a lot of news and information out there, but we are distilling that down to specific takeaways that will allow you to weather this surreal health and financial crisis. In today’s timely episode we cover a lot of good news, including more details on the CARES Act, aka the stimulus bill. Specifically we dive into unemployment, as well as the benefits that many small businesses are eligible for like Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) as well as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). And then we round the episode out by answering some questions pertaining to investing in a down market as well as paying back federal student loans.
