DOL/EBSA RIN: 1210-AB47 Publication ID: Fall 2018 
Title: Amendment of Abandoned Plan Program 
Abstract:

On April 21, 2006, the Department published a package of regulations, collectively titled Termination of Abandoned Individual Account Plans, which facilitates the termination of, and distribution of benefits from, individual account pension plans that have been abandoned by their sponsoring employers. See 71 FR 20820. This rulemaking will examine whether, and how, to amend those regulations by expanding the scope of individuals entitled to be a "qualified termination administrator" (QTA). Under the Termination of Abandoned Individual Account Plans regulations, only a QTA is authorized to determine whether an individual account plan is abandoned, and to carry out related activities necessary for the termination and winding up of the plan's affairs.
