IRS 403(b) Regulations
The new IRS 403(b) regulations went into effect on January 1, 2009. Employers found themselves facing significantly increased compliance, liability and risk issues. The changes imposed on 403(b) employers were of landmark proportions. Some of the notable changes included:

  • Written plan documentation became required for all plans
  • Employer Control and Responsibility increased
  • Employers became responsible for “meaningful notice” 
  • Changes were made to rules governing universal eligibility
  • Centralized Recordkeeping became critical to Compliance 
It is important that employers understand the impact of the regulations and recognize what is necessary to remain compliant in the ever-evolving 403(b) arena. The impact of the changes has caused employers to re-evaluate the effectiveness of the internal management for their plans and the new compliance issues.
