401k Plan Termination Date in Acquisition


Recommended Posts

When seller is required to terminate its 401k plan prior to the close of a merger/acquisition (stock deal), what date is typically used for the termination date?  Is it typically the day immediately prior to close? Or a date further in advance of close?  I've been using the date immediately prior to close, as plan termination is generally subject to close, and this allows participants to continue their deferrals as long as possible. However, this seems to complicate the actual administration of the termination re: timing of last contributions, etc.

Any thoughts would be appreciated!
