TREAS/IRS RIN: 1545-BI40 Publication ID: Fall 2013 
Title: Reporting and Notice Requirements for Deferred Vested Benefits Under Section 6057 
Abstract: Since the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), pension plans have used Schedule SSA of the Form 5500 to report participants who separate from service with deferred vested benefits. For plan years which begin after December 31, 2008, the Department of Labor will require that the Form 5500 and its schedules be filed electronically. The Department of Labor's mandated electronic filing requirement can only be for information which is within the Department of Labor's annual reporting jurisdiction. The information required under section 6057 of the Code is not in title I of ERISA and therefore not covered by the Department of Labor's annual reporting requirements. Currently, the information collected under 6057 is not subject to an electronic filing mandate. Consequently, the Schedule SSA can no longer be filed as part of the Form 5500. Therefore, it is necessary for the Service to develop a new means of satisfying the requirement of section 6057. The Service has chosen to develop a new form to replace Schedule SSA, which will require much of the same information as the Schedule SSA that was filed with the Form 5500 for plan years beginning before January 1, 2009. In Announcement 2011-21, the Service stated that the form to replace Schedule SSA is Form 8955-SSA, Annual Registration Statement Identifying Separated Participants With Deferred Vested Benefits. This is a stand-alone form and will be used for plan years beginning after December 31, 2008. The regulations would provide guidance on satisfying the reporting requirements of section 6057 for plan years beginning after December 31, 2008.
