Mastering Detailed Requirements for Service Provider Fee Disclosures
Recording of a 110-minute CPE webinar with Q&A
This teleconference will prepare advisors to employee benefit plan administrators to comply with the Labor Department's detailed disclosure requirements on plan service provider compensation starting in 2011. Using practical scenarios, the panel will provide guidance on making complete and compliant disclosures.
- ERISA 408(b)(2) interim final regulations
- Effective date
- Which plans are covered
- Standards for covered service providers
- Which services performed must or need not be disclosed
- Standards for direct and indirect provider compensation and bundled service arrangements
- Required ongoing recordkeeping
- Closely parallel disclosures on 2009 Form 5500 Schedule C
- Direct compensation paid by plan should be reported based on plan year
- Amount or estimate of indirect compensation, or indirect compensation formula, can be based on service provider’s plan year
- Including fees or expense reimbursements charged to “investment funds”
- Complex scenarios and questions likely to be faced during completion of service provider fee disclosures
- Possible options to consider in addressing them
The panel will explore these and other important facets:
- Which plans and service providers are covered: Identifying those that must be listed in disclosures.
- Which services are covered: Making sure you don't miss any of myriad services to plans.
- What are proper disclosures and recordkeeping: Ensuring your first disclosures are complete and that ongoing recordkeeping is set up to ensure that future reports are as well.
- Schedule C: Associated decisions with direct and indirect service provider compensation, bundled and unbundled arrangements, and non-monetary compensation.
