Beneficiary Designations: Avoiding Costly Issues [2019]

FIS Retirement Education

Nov. 7, 2019
Recorded Online
Webinar

It seems like it should be so easy and straight forward: the participant completes a beneficiary designation, and should the need arise, you transfer the participant’s balance to the designated beneficiary.

But this is an area fraught with risks: from intra-family disputes to slayer statutes and beyond, this session will address best practices to minimize problems for plan fiduciaries and service providers.

Topics include:

  • Application of state law
  • Spousal consent requirements
  • Determination of beneficiary
  • General vs. specific consent
  • Effect of joint and survivor rules
  • Spousal survivor rights
  • Doctrine of substantial compliance
  • Impact of slayer statutes
  • Retention of beneficiary designations and best practices
  • What to do when there are conflicting beneficiaries
  • Impact of QDROs
  • How to handle a beneficiary’s death before distribution

Objectives: After attending this Web seminar, attendees should be able to:

  • Explain the impact of QJSA provisions on the participant’s beneficiary designation
  • Determine whether a plan should apply a receipt or acceptance standard for designations
  • Properly administer the distribution of assets after the death of a participant
  • Explain the best practices plan administrators should follow with regard to beneficiary designations
  • Identify those situation when plan rules take priority over participant beneficiary designations

Speaker: David Schultz, J.D.
