PACE will timely review and request all proper information to confirm a participant’s eligibility for a withdrawal or loan from the plan.

It is important to follow a consistent protocol and maintain appropriate records and proof for any distribution or loan due to financial hardship and abide by the IRS financial hardship guidelines.

A Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) can be difficult for a plan sponsor to monitor and track once an employee has retired. Some active employees have the option to postpone the RMD until the year in which he/she retires while owners are exempt from this forgiveness.

Failure to process an RMD carries an excise penalty up to 50% of the RMD amount.
