8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Session with David Schultz, Relius

Retirement plan practitioners are facing significant changes ahead. Once again the IRS is proposing to change Form 5500, and the changes are much better than what was printed on the 2015 form (and ultimately dropped by the IRS). But they pale in comparison to the mammoth modifications the DOL is proposing for the 2019 Form 5500, as we anticipate the next generation of retirement plan reporting. The final fiduciary regulations will impact the way financial professionals market to and serve plan sponsors and participants, and the industry is still figuring out how to adjust. State-mandated IRA programs, retirement plan exchanges, and legislative proposals to encourage the use of MEPs will also bring changes and challenges to practitioners. David Schultz will walk us through these changes and review the shifting sands of retirement plan practice over the coming years.

10:00 – 10:15 a.m. Break

10:15 – 12:15 p.m. Session continues

12:15 – 12:45 p.m. Break / Lunch

12:45 – 1:15 p.m. Lunch speaker from Millennium Trust

Missing and Non-Responsive Participants: The Impact of Terminated Employees

Terminated employees who are missing or non-responsive can cost a plan thousands of dollars in administrative costs. Not only do these plan participants increase administrative costs but they slowly drain other resources and increase fiduciary responsibility. In this session, we will discuss the many issues that could arise from terminated employees who have been terminated and are non-responsive that are maintained within a retirement plan and automatic rollovers as a solution.

1:30 p.m. Conclusion

Seats are limited at this event. Please register early.
