DOL cybersecurity topics

"I'm having a meeting with my cybersecurity consultants on Monday, and I figured I'd bring them the latest guidance we have to try and follow. Are those 3 pdfs from the DOL in April 2021 (news release here) pretty much what we have officially (or semi-officially)? Thanks."

mming created a topic in Cross-Tested Plans

Average Benefits Test

"A 401k plan has over 70% in each of its rate groups for its nonelective contributons when the ratio percentage test is performed - does that allow the plan to avoid the ABT when deferrals have been made? Having to consider the deferrals in the ABT would sink testing."
