Effect of Death on 401(k) Plans [2016]

FIS Relius Education

Dec. 19, 2016
Recorded Online
[Recorded online and available for purchase.]

Death seems like such a simple matter for a 401(k) plan. A participant dies; the employer cuts the final paycheck; and the plan arranges to distribute the account to the beneficiary. The only problem is that the process is much more involved than that, with many twists, turns, and unanswered questions.

This seminar takes a close look at the effect of a participant or beneficiary’s death on a 401(k) plan.

Topics include:
* Compensation paid after death.
* Deferrals after death.
* Allocations after death.
* The effect of death on vesting.
* Determination of beneficiary.
* The effect of death on loans.
* Death of the business owner.
* Understanding plan distribution language.
* Effect of joint and survivor rules.
* Spousal survivor rights.
* Effect of QDRO.
* What to do when there are conflicting beneficiaries.
* How to handle a beneficiary’s death before distribution.
* RMD rules after death.
* Planning for surviving spouse.
* Death in the military.
* Life insurance in the plan.

There are no prerequisites or other advanced preparation for this program. Attendees should have a general familiarity with the operation of 401(k) plans, and a minimum of two years of experience.

* Explain the treatment of compensation paid after death.
* Correct errors in deferrals and match after death.
* Properly administer the required minimum distribution rules after death.
