More 5500 Foibles Jill Williams Regional Vice President TPA Operations Management The Situation In another instance one of our clients reached out to ask how to handle a situation where a participant had contacted them inquiring about his account but only had the frst page of an old statement from their previous recordkeeper to work with. The statement showed 100 percent of the participant’s account being forfeited in 2015. Since the issue occurred before Pentegra was the 316 Fiduciary we instructed the client to contact the previous recordkeeper to research the issue. Time passed and one of our Relationship Managers eventually received a phone call from the DOL—a name you do not usually want to see on your caller ID. The understandably frustrated participant had written a letter about the situation to his local district attorney who forwarded the letter to the DOL. “I wasn’t able to obtain a copy of the letter” said the Pentegra team member “but I doubt the client ever pursued the issue with the prior recordkeeper or instructed the participant to reach out to the prior recordkeeper directly.” The DOL called Pentegra because our name was now on the 5500. We immediately gave our attention to resolving the issue—and to preventing a full-scale plan audit. The DOL was able to put us in contact with the right people at the prior recordkeeper in order to research and resolve the issue. It turns out the participant was in fact forfeited in error due to an issue with the way his account was initially set up. It took some time to resolve but in the end Pentegra calculated the rate of return that the participant would have received had he not been forfeited in error. We were able to make his account whole.
