Is an amendment to a DB Plan to raise QPSA from 50% to 100% permissible?

Recommended Posts

As far as I know, there is no prohibition to being more generous than the statutory minimum.  However, I see a couple of considerations:

-  Could this proposed amendment be considered discriminatory?

-  Would the sponsor want to improve the QPSA for all potential deaths?  ie, distinguish between the death of an active participant vs. a VT participant?

Thanks you David for responding to my question. I don't anticipate the amendment would be discriminatory since it is coming from a well funded multi-employer plan that is making the change for all current and future participants (and its not aimed  or created based on the medical condition of a particular individual).
