If you have adopted a PASI, LLC plan document for a 401(k) or a Profit Sharing Plan, here’s some important information you need to know.
During the period from 2008 through 2010, all qualified plans utilizing a “pre-approved” plan document (such as the one distributed by PASI) were required to restate that plan in its entirety. Plan sponsors must adopt these new “PPA Restatements” between May 1, 2014 and April 30, 2016.
These newly restated plan documents serve two purposes:
- The effects of new legislation and regulation are incorporated into the body of the plan document, which avoids the need for cumbersome
- Our document provider can incorporate new provisions into the Plan that make it easier for us to meet your objectives.
Whenever there is a big change like this required, it presents the perfect opportunity to make any changes to your plan that you’ve been thinking of, but didn’t execute yet. We are going to be working on plan restatements starting in the new year, so that your plan documentation will be ready and complete far ahead of the 2016 deadline.
It’s a great time to update your plan and discover if any of the new features required under the new law are applicable to your plan. If you’re thinking of any other changes (i.e. changes to eligibility, loans, etc.) or other distributions, this is the time to get them squared away.
Please call PASI with any questions about the PPA Restatement process, or to discuss any changes you could, or should be, making to your plan now.
