The IRS has extended, through June 30, 2022, temporary relief from the physical presence witnessing requirement for certain retirement plan participant elections. Last year, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IRS provided temporary relief from this rule. The rule required that retirement plan participants making certain plan elections do so in the physical presence of a plan representative or a notary. The relief allows participants and plan representatives or notaries to use live audio-video technology instead of appearing in person. The IRS is considering whether it should make the relief permanent. For more information: Call or visit our website for more information!
