You Can Lead Them To Water, But You Can't Make Them Drink

Recent industry surveys indicate that less than 50% of the 403(b) plan sponsors have fully updated their plans to comply with the new Department of Treasury and Department of Labor regulatory requirements. The potential changes were communicated to plan sponsors in 2004 and the final regulations were released in 2007. Six years after the initial language was published, the majority of plan sponsors have either ignored the new regulatory requirements or failed to fully update their plans. To comply with the new requirements, plan sponsors must update their documents, monitor loans, hardships, aggregate their financials for the 5500 filing, prepare for limited scope accounting audits and other new administrative tasks. Given that the IRS has announced their intentions to audit 403(b) plans in 2011, NOW is the time for advisors to educate their clients and prospects about the ramifications of non-compliance. To enhance your knowledge and grow your business, join this panel of experts to learn more about the compliance requirements and the audit risks posed to 403(b) plan sponsors.
