403(b) Pre-approved Plans

Our nationally known industry experts have created a variety of Volume Submitter 403(b) plans with extensive flexibility to fit the needs of most 403(b) plan providers.

We offer five different adoption agreements (with three separate basic plan documents).

A “comprehensive” ERISA/non-ERISA adoption agreement which may be used for any 403(b) arrangement other than a 403(b)(9) retirement income account (RIA) plan, which is designed for certain church plans. The IRS requires that the RIA have a separate adoption agreement and basic plan document (discussed below).
A non-ERISA church adoption agreement. This adoption agreement is based on the comprehensive adoption agreement except all provisions that are not applicable to a non-electing (i.e., non-ERISA) church plan have been removed.
A non-ERISA governmental adoption agreement. This adoption agreement is based on the comprehensive adoption agreement except all provisions that are not applicable to a governmental plan have been removed.
A non-ERISA deferral-only adoption agreement. This adoption agreement is designed as a non-ERISA adoption agreement that only permits elective deferrals. It can be used by a tax-exempt entity that wants to fall within the ERISA safe harbor exemption as well any other entity that only permits elective deferrals.
A 403(b)(9) Retirement Income Account adoption agreement. This adoption agreement and basic plan document may only be used by churches. The IRS does not permit any church-affiliated organizations to use this plan, such as qualified church controlled organizations (QCCOs) because of compliance issues should an employer go from QCCO to non-QCCO status. The plan may not be adopted by non-QCCOs because the regulations prohibit non-QCCOs from maintaining an RIA plan.

In addition to the plan documents, we offer a plan maintenance program (PMP) that includes future IRS-required language modifications, restatements, and expert consulting support on the use of the document.

Our Relius Documents ASP system allows you to create comprehensive document packages (Basic Plan Document, Summary Plan Description/Summary of Plan Provisions, Supporting Forms and Filled-In Adoption Agreements) with Relius Documents through our Internet hosted application, quickly and easily.
