Planners offer pro bono advice as coronavirus takes toll on businesses
March 18, 2020 by Ann Marsh
Last week, CFP Kevin Mahoney of the financial planning firm Illumint made an offer. In a video he posted on Twitter, he would give pro bono advice to anyone who had been financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.
In one day, he received three meeting inquiries: two individuals are now unemployed due to the virus’ toll on their work, one whom may lose their permanent resident status because of it. Another is concerned that a business contract could fall through and make it difficult to pay their 2019 tax bill.
