The Long Run: Women and Retirement When Markets React No Cash, No Checks, No Problem Preparing For the Ultimate Vacation

OPERATIONAL UPDATE. Late Friday night (3/20/20) Governor Wolf changed the status of our firm from Non-essential to Essential as we do payrolls for Medical and  Emergency personnel as well as Grocery store workers.  Both Federal and PA state Governments have extended tax filing deadlines to July 15th.  In order to protect our staff and our clients, we are not letting anyone in the building. We have 2 staff personnel working in the office and 1 working remotely doing essential services. We will be answering the phones from 8 am thru 5 pm Monday thru Friday. If you normally get a refund and you need that money to pay bills for your household, please contact us and we will try to make special arrangements. For everyone else, for your protection and ours, we politely request that you wait until the emergency has passed. 

We thank you for your understanding. 

God Bless and stay safe everyone.

Chris Pakos and Staff
