  Our Presentation:

Defined contribution restatement season has descended once again.  By the time of this program, there will be less than 18 months left.  This restatement cycle provides unique challenges, as practitioners wrestle with the SECURE, CARES, and hardship amendments while they try to adapt to Cycle 3 documents.  This program will discuss the issue and concerns, and suggest practical approaches. Topics include:

  • Deadlines
  • Key changes in Cycle 3
  • Reliance
  • Integration with interim amendments
  • Office and document strategies
