See two different views - one, legal and the other plan sponsor and participant issues
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the issuance of the revised regulations under section 403(b), and the landscape in which 403(b) plans operate continues to evolve. In this presentation, we will examine some of the challenges facing 403(b) plan sponsors, including:
· recent developments affecting plan documents, including the introduction of pre-approved documents and the end of the remedial amendment period;
· typical compliance problems we are still seeing in 403(b) plan operation under the Code and ERISA;
· our experience in fixing operational failures under EPCRS;
· recent litigation involving 403(b) plans;
· trends in 403(b) plan design.
