DOL Amends Method for Plan Fiduciaries to Report Noncompliant Service Providers

July 18, 2012
Under the new ERISA 408(b)(2) service provider fee disclosure regulations, responsible plan fiduciaries must file notices with the Department of Labor (DOL) to obtain relief from ERISA's prohibited transaction provisions which may apply if a service provider fails to disclose information in accordance with the regulation's requirements. On July 13, 2012, the DOL revised the mailing address and web-based submission process for filing such notices. Under the new rule, notices may be submitted electronically through a dedicated link on the DOL's website, or by mail to a PO Box dedicated for such notices. A copy of the final rule can be found here.
