Do you already know the basics of 401(k) plans, and want to move on to the nitty gritty? There are so many rules, that it is impossible even for a very experienced practitioner to remember them all.

You can brush up on a single topic, or view the whole set, either as a live seminar, where you can ask questions, or as an archived presentation on your own schedule. Our standard pricing has been discounted to make attendance to all sessions in this series more cost effective. The series will cover the following:

There are different types of documents, with differing deadlines and opportunities for customization, including individually designed plans, prototypes, volume submitter plans. But, if you follow the rules correctly, the plan sponsor gains the assurance of “reliance” that the employer’s plan complies with the law. This seminar will explain the key rules relating to qualified plan documents including:
