Katrina victims gain access to retirement savings.
KETRA individuals who live in a state affected by Hurricane Katrina receive favorable tax treatment with respect to distributions from eligible retirement plans that are qualified Hurricane Katrina distributions, called "Katrina distributions."
KETRA also increases the allowable plan loan amount from an employer-sponsored retirement plan. In addition, it provides for a suspension of payments for plan loans outstanding on or after Aug. 25, 2005, that are made to Katrina victims.
