Breakfast Forum: Washington Update:
Legal & Regulatory Update for Retirement Plan Professionals

Steve Forbes is returning to kick off our 2018-2019 program year.

 The Presentation:

In his distinct way, Steve will inform us about the most important changes and issues affecting the benefits industry, that are upon us, including:
  • Missing Participants - IRS, DOL and PBGC’s coordinating efforts      regarding missing participants for both DB and DC plans
  • Required Distributions to Terminated Vested Participants - generally at normal retirement age unless the vested balance (accrued benefit) is deferred, raising interesting qualification issues
