The Responsibilities Of A Plan Administrator

A retirement plan administrator is the person or company your employer selects to manage its retirement savings plan. The plan administrator is responsible for working with the plan provider to ensure that the plan meets government regulations, keeping the pension on sound financial footing, and ensuring employees have the information needed to enroll, select, and change investments in the plan, apply for a loan if the plan allows loans, and request distributions.Retirement Plan Training

The Basic Government Regulations For Retirement Plans

A "qualified" plan must satisfy the Internal Revenue Code in both form and operation. That means that the provisions in the plan document must satisfy the requirements of the Code and that those plan provisions must be followed. Common elements of a qualified retirement plan include:

  • Plan Document (describes who is covered, who benefits, and what contributions or benefits will be provided)
  • Minimum Participation, Vesting, and Distribution Requirements
  • Retirement Plan Reporting and Disclosure
Employers should establish practices and procedures to ensure the plan is not only operated in accordance with the plan document, but have a process for getting updated on the laws, regulations, limites, etc., as they frequently change.
