403(b) Correction - EPCRS

Guest ccl

Recommended Posts

I am having a problem with figuring out how to correct the following: An employer has a 403(b) Plan which has a matching benefit accrual requirement of 1000 hours of service per year. Thus in order to accrue a matching benefit for the year, the employee must have worked 1000 hours or more. The plan has basicially ignored this requirement in practice and has given all employees a match, whether or not they have worked 1000 hours in the year.

The employer needs to correct this problem under EPCRS. The plan does have a written document already.

How would this be corrected?

Probably an EPCRS corrective amendment that removes, retroactively, the 1,000 hour requirement.

That's what I thought too but 4.05 of the EPCRS seems to imply that retroactive plan amendments are only for qualified plans and can't be used for 403(b) Plans. Anybody have any imput?
