 The Presentation: 

403(b) plans really are different. The little noticed minutiae of the 403(b) rules are often the ones which trigger the most difficult circumstances to resolve.  Two well-traveled 403(b) aficionados will light-heartedly detail a number of the most regularly occurring quirks that hamper effective plan administration and create unexpected issues, and they will explore potential solutions.

  • Explore key, technical differences between 403(b) plans and 401(k) plans
  • Identify unusual document drafting issues for which sponsors should be aware
  • Identify unresolved regulatory issues and filing issues.
