Restating Pre-approved (Prototype/Volume Submitter) Plan Documents

An increasing number of qualified plan sponsors use IRS-preapproved (i.e., “prototype” or “volume submitter”) plan documents provided by a third-party service provider (such as the plan’s investment provider or recordkeeper). All employers who have adopted a pre-approved plan with a 2008 IRS opinion letter must restate their plans by adopting an updated (2014) version of the document by no later than April 30, 2016. As pre-approved plans become increasingly complex (with literally hundreds of plan design options to choose from), it is increasingly easy to make mistakes when restating them, even if the terms of the plan have not changed. The restatement process is also a good time to reconsider your plan design or add new features (such as automatic enrollment or a Roth conversion option).
