401(k) Beyond the Basics 14: Participant Loans: The Fine Print

Handling plan loans is one of the least enjoyable aspects of retirement plan practice. But it remains an important part. Many employees want to be able to borrow from their accounts, and that often includes the owners. Plan loans impact plans in many ways: prohibited transaction rules, deemed distribution rules, joint and survivor rules, plan asset rules, and more. There's a lot to keep track of just to let a participant have temporary access to his or her funds. Topics include:

• Avoiding Deemed Distributions
◦ Maximum Loan Amount
◦ Enforceable Agreement
◦ Repayment Rules
◾5 Year Limit
◾Level Amortization
◾Payment Suspension
◦ Curing Defaults
◦ Refinancing Loan
• Consequences of Deemed Distribution ◦Penalty Taxes
◦ Loan Offsets
◦ Reporting
◦ Repayment
◦ Phantom Interest
◦ Limits on Future Borrowing
• Avoiding Prohibited Transactions ◦Reasonable Interest
◦ Nondiscrimination Requirements
◦ Reasonable Availability
◦ Adequate Security
◦ Plan Provisions or Policy
• Joint and Survivor Requirements

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.
