Plan terminating without plan attorney


Recommended Posts

401k small plan sponsor has just decided to terminate plan by end of year. Plan up to date on amendments but they no longer have a plan attorney. They will not be filing a DL. Is it acceptable to just create a plan resolution to terminate from a template?

You can amend to terminate through resolution, but you'd typically want a definitive amendment to terminate. The amendment effectively triggers immediate vesting (which is already incorporated into the plan "if" terminated) and a distributable event. You would want your amendment to specify the termination date.

Good Luck!
