Deadline to adopt restated preapproved DC plans
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has published deadlines for employers to adopt preapproved defined contribution (DC) retirement plans.

• April 30, 2016, is the deadline for employers using preapproved retirement plan documents to sign an updated version of their 401(k), profit-sharing, or other defined contribution retirement plans.
• April 30, 2017, is the extended deadline for any defined contribution preapproved plan adopted on or after January 1, 2016, other than a plan that is adopted as a modification and restatement of a defined contribution preapproved plan that had been maintained by the employer prior to January 1, 2016. This extension is to facilitate a plan sponsor’s ability to convert an existing individually designed plan into a current defined contribution preapproved plan. See Notice 2016-3.
