Webcast Outline


The first 403(b) restatement period for pre-approved plans has officially begun. The IRS acknowledged that restating 403(b) plans will be more difficult than restating qualified plans, and therefore, provided a longer deadline. The webcast begins with a high-level overview of the substantive differences between 401(k) and 403(b) plans, to assist in understanding the unique issues that may arise when restating 403(b) plans. Explore specific issues that practitioners encounter as they prepare for the restatements.

Key Takeaways:
1. Explain to your clients the significance of the remedial amendment period and why their plans need to be restated
2. Begin preparing a process for obtaining the information needed to complete the restatement
3. Inform clients about operational changes that will result from the plan restatements
