|Text of IRS Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Public Hearing: Suspension of Benefits under the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014|
Internal Revenue Service [IRS]
June 17, 2015
74 pages. "This document contains proposed regulations relating to multiemployer pension plans that are projected to have insufficient funds, at some point in the future, to pay the full benefits to which individuals will be entitled under the plans (referred to as plans in 'critical and declining status).... MPRA requires the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the [PBGC] and the Secretary of Labor, to approve or deny applications by these plans to reduce benefits. As required by MPRA, these proposed regulations, together with temporary regulations being published at the same time, provide guidance implementing these statutory provisions. These proposed regulations would affect active, retired, and deferred vested participants and beneficiaries of multiemployer plans that are in critical and declining status as well as employers contributing to, and sponsors and administrators of, those plans."
