Distribution Timing Differs for Retirees

"This plan is a non-standardized profit sharing plan. I'm working on the restatement and the client would like distributions to be delayed until a 1 year break in service following a participant's termination of employment, unless the termination is due to retirement (in which case the delay would be only 30 days). Would this be allowable? I'd have to add it under 'other' in the adoption agreement."

Repayment of a CARES Act Distribution

"Participant had taken a CARES distribution and had sent a cashier check in repayment of the CARES distribution. The plan is terminating. The participant's status was flipped to 'T.'  Because of that, can this check be posted into the terminating plan? Or into an IRA? If we cannot post it into the terminating plan, what's the reason?"
