DOL and IRS Retirement Plan Audits: Strategies for Success!

Program Number: 2839

Program Date: 09/14/2018

Description

No need to worry if you are a plan sponsor whose defined contribution or defined benefit plan has been selected for an audit by the Department of Labor (DOL) or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). The webinar will provide you with an overview of the typical timeline for a DOL and IRS audit and the information the auditor will likely request to review, including common topics for interviews. We will discuss how such audits are often closed and strategies on working with the DOL and IRS to complete the audit as quickly as possible. If you are a sponsor of a plan that has not yet been selected for an audit, we will offer tips on reviewing your own plan administration and governance processes to proactively address concerns raised in DOL and IRS audits.
