The subsidiary was integrated into DB Regio on 31 December The two S-Bahn networks handled and still handle over million passengers annually.
But in June it announced a significant cutback in determination letters for individually designed plans and changes to the routine review cycle for preapproved plans. Each employer with an existing preapproved plan must restate its plan on or before April 30, The plan restatement is the last step in the second 6-year remedial amendment cycle.
Lessons Learned Employers that participated in the second cycle for preapproved DC plans that ended on April 30,learned valuable lessons about the restatement process that can apply to this recent cycle for DB plans.
Taking a page from the books of their DC plan sponsor compatriots that have been through this process, all employers can: Understand the role of the employer in the process. Schedule changes in plan design. Manage the payment of document provider costs.
For an employer sponsoring a cash balance CB plan, consider basing the interest-crediting rate on the actual plan asset rate of return. For an employer considering terminating a DB plan, coordinate the restatement process with the termination process. For an employer with an individually designed plan document, consider the pros and cons of moving to a preapproved plan document.
In anticipation of this, an employer is encouraged to review its existing plan document and any related plan amendments, to consider any desired changes in plan design, and to evaluate administrative policies and procedures that could be improved.
These steps will help outline the tasks related to, and timing of, the restatement. Generally, the document provider will notify an employer that the plan must be restated and will communicate its expectation of when the restatement will occur.
Some providers may include a draft of the restated plan based on an assumption that the employer does not intend to make any changes to the plan. The employer may get a to day window to review the draft, ask questions, and request any design changes.
Many providers can provide for the documents to be signed electronically. The employer and any other signatories execute the documents and distribute the disclosures. Ultimate Plan Fiduciary A restatement process in which there are no plan design changes is deceptively simple. Each employer always must keep in mind, though, that it, as the plan sponsor, is the ultimate plan fiduciary responsible for the design and operation of the plan.
Once the documents are executed, it is the employer that is responsible and accountable for the plan. The IRS expects that by executing the documents, the employer knows what is in the plan documents and the employer has reviewed and consented to all the contents of the documents. To do this properly, the employer should anticipate the amount of time that will be needed to complete a proper review.
The plan document is on average about pages. The adoption agreement often has more than 40 pages of affirmative choices and applicable default provisions. The SPD can have more than 50 pages, and should accurately reflect the provisions in the formal documents.
If the employer wishes to change elements of the plan design, often the change cannot be effective until the start of the next plan year. This is most common for changes that affect eligibility and benefit accruals. For example, an employer with a calendar-year plan year that wishes to have this type of change made effective January 1,should begin discussing this immediately with the document provider.
An employer that fails to coordinate with the document provider regarding such changes may have to amend the plan twice—once to comply with the required restatement and once to adopt the desired plan design changes. The effort to coordinate the amendment and restatement process with the provider is far less than the effort and expense to amend twice.
Whether an expense can be paid from plan assets for services provided to a plan has long been debated.As a follow-up to Tuesday’s post about the majority-minority public schools in Oslo, the following brief account reports the latest statistics on the cultural enrichment of schools in Austria.
