SECURE Act and Retirement Plan Administration: ERISA Compliance Issues for Plan Sponsors and Employers


Mar. 25, 2020
Recorded Online

Expansion of Part-Time Employee Eligibility, Changes for 401(k) Safe Harbor Plans, Lifetime Income Disclosures, Annuity Options

This CLE webinar will guide ERISA counsel, plan sponsors, and employers on the impact of the SECURE Act on retirement plans (including 401(k), 403(b), and defined benefit pension plans) and critical challenges for ERISA compliance. The panel will discuss key provisions of the SECURE Act and key plan administration challenges, the expansion of part-time employee eligibility, changes impacting safe harbor 401(k) plans, new lifetime income disclosure requirements, annuity options for defined contribution plans, and other compliance challenges for plan sponsors and employers.

The SECURE Act contains several provisions that significantly change qualified retirement plan design and operation. ERISA attorneys, plan sponsors, and employers must recognize the impact of the SECURE Act and prepare for IRS and DOL interpretations and requirements.

Key provisions of the Act will undoubtedly present administrative and compliance challenges for plan sponsors and employers. The SECURE Act provides for an expansion of plan participation of part-time employees, new nondiscrimination relief for closed defined benefit plans, and increased penalties for failure to file returns and notices. Also, the Act includes rule changes impacting plan distributions, withdrawals, and loans along with safe harbor 401(k) plans and annuity options under defined contribution plans.

Listen as our panel discusses the key provisions of the SECURE Act and how it will impact retirement plan design, implementation, and administration, as well as offer best practices for ERISA compliance for plan sponsors and employers.
