Restatement 01: Restatement Deadlines and Details
Presentor: Derrin Watson Recorded Date: 7/28/2014 Duration: 60 Min.

This program was recorded during a live presentation given on July 28, 2014 at 12:00PM EDT.

This series provides education and commentary on plan designs and the restatement process. It focuses on legal principles which can apply to any plan, rather than on the specifics of any one plan document. As always we look forward to answering attendee questions, whether submitted ahead of time or during the program.

All sessions will be recorded and available for purchase. Due to the inability to track attendance, however, a Letter of Participation is not provided for recorded events.


Restatement Perspectives 01: Restatement Deadlines and Details

The restatement process is upon us with a vengeance, and practitioners have lots of questions. This program provides clear answers to questions like these:

  • What are the deadlines?
  • Which should I use, prototype or volume submitter?
  • What are the differences from the EGTRRA document?
  • Which interim amendments does this cover
  • If I terminate a plan, do I need to restate it first?
  • If I merge a plan, should I restate before I merge?
  • What happens if I “color outside the lines”
  • Can I submit for a determination letter? Should I?

Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites or advance preparation for this program. The instructor will assume attendees are familiar with preapproved plan documents and with the operation of 401(k) plans.
