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. Each installment in this series will present a one-hour focused look at a single topic affecting 401(k) plans and provide the information practitioners need to know to be sure they are fully assisting the companies and participants they serve. 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:

401(k) Beyond the Basics 08: ADP Testing Techniques

A lot of plan design focuses on the ADP test, with good reason. In many respects, it is the most unpredictable of the various plan tests, depending as it does on employee elections. That’s why it is important to have alternative strategies to deal with the test, and that’s what we will explore in this seminar. Topics include:

** Current or prior year testing
o Limitations
o Strategies
o First year rule
** Testing alternatives
o OEE rule
o Early participation rule
o Compensation definition
o Plan aggregation
o Exclusion
** Testing intricacies
o Bottom up QNECs
o Reporting
o Catch-ups
o Dealing with improper rollovers
o Defensive use of plan limits

Prerequisites:
There are no prerequisites or other advanced preparation for this program. The instructor will assume attendees have a general familiarity with the qualified plan requirements, and a minimum of two years of experience in dealing with qualified plans.
