Tips for Preparing for 408(b)(2)

From Tips for Preparing for 408(b)(2) originally posted in PlanAdvisor:

The requirement for the 404a-5 disclosure of fees from plan fiduciaries to plan participants will shift the burden onto the service provider.

According to the DoL documents, this includes, “information or data about the designated investment alternative that is within the control of, or reasonably available to the covered service provider and that is required for the covered plan administrator to comply with the disclosure obligations described in 29 CFR 2550.404a-5(d)(1).”  The document adds that 404a-5 information “must be disclosed as soon as practicable, but not later than the date the investment alternative is designed by the covered plan.”
