|Old ESOP Plan Documents / No Adoption Agreement|
BenefitsLink Message Boards
Feb. 21, 2021
"Group: New client is in initial stages of audit of Esop. In reviewing her businesses 2013 ESOP Plan Document I noticed there was no Adoption Agreement prepared for client at time. Or at least none the client could find. And no restated esop documents. There are corporate resolutions and an SPD. Its my understanding that the former TPA (who I'm told was a volume submitter) at the time assisted in drafting clients esop documents. I thought it would be easy to contact them but I don't believe they're still in business. It seems a little late in the proverbial game to draft an adoption agreement corresponding with the provisions of the plan document. As part of our IDR disclosure to auditor would you give copy of old ESOP Plan Document with explanation that the TPA is no longer around to obtain a copy of any adoption agreement? Thoughts and comments appreciated."
