Advanced 401(k) Topics Workshop
Covering Current Events (including the SECURE Act), Multiple Employer Plans, Missing Participants, and More

Questions. 401(k) plan administration gives rise to many different questions, and the answers are constantly changing. This practical, two-day, intermediate course will help enhance your 401(k) knowledge and update you on the most recent 401(k) plan guidance. As always, we will feature discussion and practical examples regarding some of the top issues of the day, such as:

  • How the SECURE Act may/will impact 401(k) plan design and administration over the coming years
  • How recent legal and regulatory changes, including the IRS¡¯s recent MEP guidance, will impact plan participants and administrators
  • The impact recent court cases have on prudent plan design and operation
  • Appropriate correction procedures for common 401(k) administration errors

Taught by professional attorney/instructors, the ERISA workshop helps the rules make sense by presenting them against the backdrop of real life problems. Our attorney/instructor not only knows what the law says, he knows how to present it in a manner that is clear and readily understandable.

OBJECTIVES: After the program, attendees should be able to:

  • Implement strategies to increase 401(k) plan participation and deferral amounts
  • Determine whether a MEP might be right for your firm or your clients
  • Properly advise plan sponsors regarding the proper handling of missing participants
  • Explain the best correction method for various operational failures in 401(k) plans
  • Detail the major changes to laws, regulations, and guidance that can impact 401(k) sponsors in 2019 and beyond

Prerequisites: There are no prerequisites for this program however, participants should come with an understanding of the general operation of 401(k) plans. Attendees should have at least a year of experience working with employer plans.

Who Should Attend: The Advanced 401(k) Topics Workshop is designed for practitioners who have some experience working with retirement plans in general, and experience with 401(k) plans, in particular, is a plus.
