Dealing with Rehired Employees [2016]

FIS Relius Education

Dec. 13, 2016
Recorded Online
Webcast

According to recent IRS examinations, applying eligibility conditions correctly (entering too early, too late or not at all) continues to be a problem for many plans. The results are not surprising considering the fact that rules are counterintuitive. Furthermore, many plans now impose early eligibility conditions (i.e., less than one year) for which the regulations provide far less guidance.

Some of the more challenging eligibility questions that confront a retirement plan practitioner are questions relating to rehired and part-time employees. When does a rehired employee re-enter/enter the plan? Can a plan exclude part-time employees? How may the plan define part-time employees? When and how do the break-in-service rules affect rehired and part-time employees? Does the one-year hold out rule apply to a 401(k) plan? What vesting years of service must the plan credit for a rehired employee? Does it matter whether the participant received a cash-out distribution? If the rehired participant is receiving distributions, do you stop the distributions? Surprisingly, these questions and more arise often. A misapplication of the rules raises disqualification issues and the possibility of corrective contributions.

With some well-crafted examples, the speaker illustrates how to apply these rules and eliminate the confusion that seems to follow rehired and part-time employees, as well as the early eligibility provisions. Practitioners attending this webcast will obtain the necessary understanding to apply the rules properly, avoiding hours of difficult research.

  • When can the plan treat the rehired employee as a new employee?
