Avoiding Common Errors – Plan Design & Administrative Considerations Webcast Series


Each year, the IRS publishes its “Top Ten” list of compliance failures in tax-qualified retirement plans. Virtually all of these failures can be traced to how companies have designed and administered their 401(k) and other retirement plans. Join NIPA and ERISA attorneys Patti Hedgpeth and Andrew Douglass for a two-part webcast series to discuss how TPAs can better design and monitor tax-qualified retirement plans to minimize the occurrence of these common errors.

Ethics and Professional Responsibility

Time: 11:00 A.M. – 12:40 PM Central Time

This session is intended to provide practitioners with the tools needed to recognize, evaluate, and reasonably solve ethical conundrums. The first portion of the session is a succinct discussion of the Circular 230 ethical rules that generally apply to practitioners in the retirement plan area, as well as ethical obligations imposed by other organizations (such as NIPA or the American Bar Association) and by the practitioner's own moral code. The second portion of the session is a series of skits, providing the participants with opportunities to hear various hypothetical ethical scenarios, and then contemplate possible acceptable solutions.


This webcast costs $99 for members and $199 for nonmembers.
