403(b) Pre-Approved Plan Documents Release - Are You Compliant?

For the first time, the IRS has issued pre-approved 403(b) plan documents. Along with the release of the new documents, the IRS is providing a special remedial amendment period for certain plans. But while adopting the new document within the remedial period can correct for plan document form defects, it will not correct for operational errors. Now is the time to ensure the day-to-day operation of your 403(b) plan matches the language in your plan document. Join us to learn the important advantages for 403(b) plan sponsors who adopt a pre-approved plan document and how to identify and correct for an operational error.
