The free phone forum, “Plan Terminations: What You Need to Know Before You Terminate That Plan,” will be held on May 6 at 2 p.m. EST. The one-hour session will feature IRS employees discussing important items to review when a retirement plan terminates, such as:
- How to set the date of termination;
- The permanency requirement;
- The need to update the plan for all law requirements; and
- Accelerated vesting requirements.
The forum will also discuss the different types of terminations for defined benefit plans and what happens if the plan is overfunded or underfunded.
Questions on this topic should be emailed firstname.lastname@example.org by April 21 for inclusion in the forum.
Those interested can register for the forum here. After registering, an email will be sent with detailed access instructions.
