September 2018 ::: News

The Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service mandates that all eligible employees be notified of their right to participate in your company's retirement plan. They must be given written information about the plan and must complete and sign an enrollment form indicating whether or not they will be participating in the plan.

Remember, Employer Contributions must be made by the due date of your corporate tax returns on extension to be tax deductible.

September 2018 ::: News

The Department of Labor (DOL) is taking a very firm position that employee 401(k) salary deferrals and employee loan repayments must be transferred from the Employer to the Plan’s Investment Trust as soon as administratively feasible. The DOL has said that their definition of "as soon as administratively feasible" is the same day that the Employer makes payment of an employee’s payroll.

  • The Department of Labor (DOL) is taking a very firm position that employee 401(k) salary deferrals and employee loan repayments must be transferred from the Employer to the Plan’s Investment Trust as soon as administratively feasible. The DOL has said that their definition of "as soon as administratively feasible" is the same day that the Employer makes payment of an employee’s payroll for a company with over 100 participants, and within 7 days after payroll for a smaller company. This is a serious issue for plan sponsors. Please contact your Account Executive to ensure your deposit procedures comply with DOL standards.
  • Plan Sponsors are required to develop an Investment Policy suitable to their plan and to the plan participants. An Investment Policy deals with the suitability of investment products, performance, plan expenses and compliance with
    ERISA 404(c) (which offers the employer some relief from liability due to adverse investment performance). A written Investment Policy Statement should be prepared and kept on file. The Statement should be reviewed with your Investment Advisor as circumstances warrant (at least once each year). Please call your Account Executive for information about your Investment Policy obligations.
