Single Employer Plan Terminations: Revised Reporting and Disclosure Requirements


Geller, Sheldon M., The CPA Journal


Employers sponsoring defined benefit pension plans must be aware of recent changes in government filing and notice requirements. The PBGC released new forms for standard and distress terminations and revised the timetables for plan terminations in proposed regulations.

The proposed termination date cannot be less than 60 days after the issuance of the written notice of intent to terminate; 3.

PBGC Form 5500 and Schedule EA-S must be used in connection with notices of intent to terminate issued on or after February 1, 1990, and participants and beneficiaries must receive notice of benefits specifying the amount to be received upon plan termination by the date of filing Form 500 and Schedule EA-S; 5. For standard terminations (e.g., adequately funded plans), the proposed date for distribution of assets cannot be earlier than 60 days or later than 240 days from the date of filing Form 500 with the PBGC. If no notice of noncompliance is issued by PBGC (within 60 days of filing), final distribution of assets must take place within 180 days after the 60-day period during which PBGC reviews the filing. …
