Getting your arms around the many retirement laws and regulations can be overwhelming for new and experienced retirement plan professionals. For practitioners without a foundation in our complex retirement system, practical realities lead to time-wasting searches for answers, lost productivity and mistakes.
FIS has a well-established Fundamentals program (started shortly after ERISA) that has trained thousands of retirement plan practitioners around the country.
Fundamentals of 401(k) and Other Qualified Plans is a 3-day course combining an introduction to 401(k) plans with a comprehensive study of defined contribution plan requirements and challenges of qualified plan administration. Speakers examine the unique administrative and testing rules essential to 401(k) plan compliance and use case studies and presentations to teach attendees how these rules apply to everyday situations.
Fundamentals provides a practical background to help pension professionals who work with these types of plans and offers an opportunity to learn the basics, including the latest changes and regulatory guidance. For new practitioners, Fundamentals is essential learning and an effective way to gain a broad understanding of the landscape. For experienced practitioners, it is an excellent refresher on the basics of qualified plan practice, as well as exposure to the latest new rules and concepts.
