Central States Pension Plan: Partial Withdrawal Followed by Complete Withdrawal

Employer has partial withdrawal from the Central States multiemployer pension plan, followed two years later by a complete withdrawal. In calculating liability under the partial withdrawal, Administrator included 2007 and 2008 in the calculation. Upon the complete withdrawal two years later, the actuary is still including 2007 and 2008 contribution & UVB in the calculation. Shouldn't the "first 2 years" drop off when calculating the "complete withdrawal"?

Any Way to Get Lower VCP Fee at This Point?

We submitted an anonymous VCP application in 2017 when the fee was $10,000. Under the latest procedure, the fee is only $3,500. Any way to apply the new fee schedule? The VCP process is ongoing.

Adding Safe Harbor Non-Elective Contribution Provisions to Existing 401(k) Plan

We have an existing 401(k) plan that wants to add a SHNEC. Can this be done mid-year? Or instead can it be done only as of the first day of a plan year?
