DC plan - post termination amendment to allow partial distributions


Belgarath

Recommended Posts

Any reason DC plan that didn't allow partial distributions at termination date (12/31/2017) can't be amended to allow them now? Final distributions won't be available for quite some time, and they want participants to be able to receive some money currently.

I think it is fine, but I seem to recall some post-termination amendment issues with DB plans particularly.

Thanks.

Could someone take a 99.9% partial withdrawal?

There is nothing that prevents a partial distribution of the termination payout with the balance to be paid later.  It is not an in-service withdrawal, it's a termination distribution.

In most plans that do this the trustee determines the percentage of the payout.  This allows the people to get some of their money while the plan gets the D Letter and other final actions happen.  It keeps the people happy while the plan can do what it needs to do to make sure all is good.
