Davis-Bacon Provisions in a 403(b)

"Is it possible for a 403(b) plan to allow for prevailing wage contributions in the 403(b) plan, as is possible in a 401(k)? So the fringe benefit portion of the prevailing wage, if not used for any other purpose, would be deposited in the 403(b) rather than given out as cash. I'm assuming if it is allowed it would be subject to the availability in the plan document and the service providers limitations."

Gateway Contribution If No HCE?

"If there are no HCE's who are left participating in a DB/DC combo plan (an odd situation, I know, and it may just be a 1 year aberration), how would that impact the Gateway? Is it still the 7.5% or can that be reduced dramatically? The employer is going through some turmoil and change over so just want to make sure what we can/can't do."

Incorrect Calculation on Unsigned and Not Finalized QDRO

"I started a 401K plan in 2000, stopped contribution in 2011 because of job change; was married in 2005. I just received copy of QDRO and they are asking for 50% and it is not a correct calculation. What can I file to correct the order?"
