New Pre-Approved Plan Documents Forthcoming.

The IRS has announced that it will soon be issuing opinion and advisory letters for pre-approved (master & prototype or volume submitter) defined contribution plan documents. Employers using pre-approved plan documents for profit sharing, money purchase, 401(k), or other defined contribution plans must restate their plans using one of these newly approved documents by April 30, 2016.
