403(b) Hot Topics
 (and that’s not an oxymoron)

Tuesday, June 12, 2018  10:00 am - 12:00 pm PST

In this webinar, we will cover the major developments altering the landscape of 403(b) plans in 2018, including the introduction of IRS pre-approved plan documents and the 403(b) fee litigation. We will also discuss the everyday operational issues that continue to crop up in 403(b) plan administration and some practical approaches to fixing them. This will include a discussion of when plans errors need to be corrected under EPCRS, and when they can be fixed painlessly under the remedial amendment period rules.  

Specific topics will include:

  • Yes, 403(b) plans really are different from 401(k) plans
  • The new IRS pre-approved 403(b) plan documents:
    • Should my plan adopt one?
    • Considerations when switching to a pre-approved document
    • Using the remedial amendment period
  •  Common operational errors and how to fix them
  • Update on 403(b) plan fee litigation
