  1. Consideration of a payout by May 31, 18 or delay until June. Looking for the April 2018 published rates for 417(e), to see if there is interest rate arbitrage issues. Does anyone know the published April 2018 rates?
  2. Plan sponsor will terminate its pension plan in a standard termination. The plan currently has no lump sum distribution option, other than forced cash-outs for small benefits under $1,000, and other cash-outs (e.g., to an IRA) between $1,000 and $5,000. The sponsor wants to add a lump sum distribution option for participants who are not in benefit payment status, to be used in connection with the standard termination. So far, so good. The sponsor, however, wants to specify a lookback month for determining the applicable interest rate to be used in determining the lump sums under the new distribution option that is different than the lookback month used for determining small benefit cash-outs. Is this do-able? Or, does it violate the 417(e)/411(d)(6) rules? Specifically, does it run afoul of the regulations at 1.417(e)-1(d)(4), which provides in relevant part: "The time and method for determining the applicable interest rate for participant's distribution must be determined in a consistent manner that is applied uniformly to all participants in the plan." Would it be OK to get by this issue by "protecting" the participants with small benefits by giving them the benefit of the greater of lump sums determined under the two interest rates. (Everyone else will have a lump sum calculated under the new interest rate.) Thanks!
