Understanding and Applying the New Correction Procedure

Thursday, September 23, 2021

8:00 am to 9:45 am

Our Presentation:

If there is one truth we all know about retirement plans, it is that there are no perfect plans. Regardless of how careful we are, the rules are too numerous and complicated not to experience an occasional failure. Fortunately, the IRS has recognized that mistakes happen and has provided us with a plan correction procedure – EPCRS. The IRS recently updated the procedure (Rev. Proc. 2021-30), providing new correction options and expanding existing correction options. In this session, I will explain (using examples) the changes made to the correction procedure. In addition, using practical case studies, I will illustrate how to use the correction principles to resolve some difficult plan failures.

  • Extended self-correction period
  • Failure to enroll a 401(k) plan participant
  • De Minimis failures/corrections
  • Plan amendment failures
  • New pre-submission conference
  • Overpayments
  • Coverage failure correction
