|Including Long-Term Part-Time Employees in 401(k) Plans|
Aug. 2, 2021
"[T]he SECURE Act changed the rules that permitted 401(k) plans to exclude individuals who worked less than 1,000 hours in the plan year.... [Unanswered questions include:] Can an equivalency method be used for counting service? How should a plan handle any missed deferral opportunities for [long-term part time (LTPT)] employees? Will LTPT employees be counted as 'participants' for purposes of the Form 5500? Will the LTPT rules apply to 'grandfathered' governmental plans? Will the LTPT rules apply to church 401(k) plans?"
