Specialty Session: Welcome Relief - What You Need to Know about the New EPCRS Guidance

On April 19, 2019, the IRS issued a Revenue Procedure (Rev. Proc. 2019-19) that updated the Employee Plans Compliance Resolution System (“EPCRS”) and expanded the availability of the Self-Correction Program (“SCP”) to additional types of failures and additional types of correction methodologies.  The expansion of SCP provides more opportunity to self-correct certain plan document failures, specified loan failures, and operational failures that require a retroactive amendment.  This specialty session will address the details of the items covered by the EPCRS expansion, how this benefits plan sponsors, and the remaining questions and potential issues for plan sponsors that try to use SCP under Rev. Proc. 2019-19.

Members may attend at no charge. Non members may attend for $40.00.
