415(b) Increases and Governmental Plan

Recommended Posts

1.415(b)-1(c)(5)  states that an automatic benefit increase can essentially be disregarded when applying the 415 dollar limit to a benefit if 1) the benefit is paid in a form to which section 417(e)(3) does not apply, 2) the plan satisfies other requirements.

I have a plan that provides for an accelerated form of payment (a Social Security Level Income Option), but otherwise satisfies all of the requirements of the above section. The catch is that this is a governmental plan that is exempt from the requirements of 417(e). Does a form of payment that would otherwise be subject to 417(e)(3) no longer fail the above exception by virtue of being paid from a governmental plan?
