403(b) Operational Compliance Assessment

December 5, 2017
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Related Industry:



Knowing your 403(b) plan is compliant with Internal Revenue Code and ERISA requirements enables you to confidently fulfill your role of sponsoring a retirement plan at a college or university. Over the years, CBIZ Retirement Plan Services and Husch Blackwell professionals have identified plan areas that are prone to errors and are likely to come under review during a Department of Labor or IRS audit.

In this webinar, we will discuss operational issues that go unnoticed because they are outside the traditional service scope of a 403(b) investment product provider. Common noncompliance errors include:

  • Not administering the plan in accordance with the plan document.
  • Treating components of compensation incorrectly.
  • Being inconsistent in or failing to perform nondiscrimination testing.
  • Ineligible participants receiving employer contributions.
  • Missing minimum distributions and/or violating distribution restrictions.
  • Failing to limit contributions or allocations.
  • Determining eligibility based on actual hours worked.
