PlanSponsor: Ensuring A Clean Record Conversion
Dylan Telerski / 14 Feb 2019
PlanSponsor – the top magazine focused on providing information to retirement plan decision-makers consulted Ubiquity Retirement + Savings founder and CEO Chad Parks for ensuring clean recordkeeper conversions.
…Conduct a mini audit of the plan before the conversion. The sponsor needs to supply the new recordkeeper with all of the plan documents, including the financial statement, prior compliance testing and annual reports. This is a good time to ensure all of these are in compliance
Parks also notes that after assets are moved to the new recordkeeper, it is very important to ensure that account balances match, both in total and for each participant.
