  1. Good afternoon everyone, We recently had a client express interest in qualified disaster distributions (QDD's) as they are allowable under the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2021 and prior law. I realize that these cannot be used if COVID is the only major disaster declared in the area. However, this client is in an area that experiences frequent and intense hurricanes, so I think they are good on the first prong below. A "qualified individual" is an individual: whose principal place of abode at any time during the incident period of any qualified disaster is located in the qualified disaster area with respect to such qualified disaster; and who has sustained an economic loss by reason of such qualified disaster. My question is surrounding what we, the TPA, would need to include on the form we provide to this client specific to proof. In certain distributions, we've required a showing of proof that the individual meets the requirements. I'm not sure if this can be treated like COVID distributions (CRD's) where they self certify, or if we need to include some other showing of proof that participants would be required to include in their submission for such a distribution. Wondering if anyone has thoughts on what type of proof a participant would need to submit for this type of distribution? Thanks in advance!
  2. Has anyone seen or does anyone have insight into why we haven't received an update from the IRS on hardship and loan relief to victims of Hurricane Florence, similar to other hurricanes such as Harvey and Matthew? From a quick google search, it appears that the announcement was provided within a few days of the disaster in the past. The only update I can find is with respect to tax relief, but not hardships and loans. https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/help-for-victims-of-hurricane-florence
