Notice of Endangered Status (2022)
February 14, 2022 | Plan Changes, Pension
As you may know, the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA) has added requirements for measuring the financial health of multiemployer plans such as ours. Starting with the 2008 plan year, the PPA requires that a Pension Fund’s actuary determine the Fund’s status under these new rules annually and certify that status to the IRS and the Trustees (who are the plan sponsor). If the actuary determines that the Fund is in “endangered” status (“yellow zone”) or “critical” status (“red zone”) for the year, the Trustees must notify all plan participants, employers and other stakeholders and take corrective action to restore the financial health of the plan.
