Eligible withdrawals are not subject to an early withdrawal penalty, and the amount available for to take as a plan loan has been temporarily increased. You may even choose to suspend plan loan repayments for the remainder of 2020. For more information, visit https://www.transamerica.com/portal/lbh/ or call 1-800-755-5801.

Talking to managers / flexible scheduling
