DOL/EBSA RIN: 1210-AB20 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Pension Benefit Statements-Lifetime Income Illustrations 

Section 105 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) requires plans that are subject to ERISA to automatically provide participants and certain beneficiaries with individual pension benefit statements. Generally, defined benefit plans must provide the statement every three years, with an annual alternative. Individual account plans that permit participant direction must provide the statement quarterly, and individual account plans that do not permit participant direction of investments must provide the statement annually. Section 203 of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019 amended section 105 of ERISA to add a lifetime income illustration to pension benefit statements furnished to participants in certain defined contribution plans.
