How long do you think the market volatility could last?  

You never know about volatility but stay true to your risk tolerance and long-range plans.


Should I reach out to my financial planner during this time? I am sure he is swamped.

Absolutely. Your planner’s responsibility is to answer any questions and to be there to offer guidance.


My 401(k) account balance has dropped. How should I think about that right now to stay on track with my financial goals? 

Set up a call with your financial planner to make sure your entire strategy is balanced.


With so many people working from home, is the security of my account the same?

Yes, security measures are not affected by this situation.


I’m already in retirement and don’t have as much time for the market to recover. Should I rethink my financial plan? 

Maintain the plan, though make sure your essential expenses are covered by non-market investments.


Is the reporting of values still accurate?

Yes, although some mutual fund companies may be a little delayed at the end of the day, as mutual funds price after trading for the day.
