20. Plan Administrator

Most 401(k) customers name their company as their official 401(k) Plan Administrator, though you do have the option of designating an outside party to handle your 401(k) plan administration via 401(k).

Who will serve as Plan Administrator for your 401(k) plan? If you don't know, mark the "Unsure. Please contact..." box.

22.Compliance test preferences

(remember, just mark "Unsure" if you want help with any item; compliance test preferences is something people new to 401(k) plans usually need help with)

You have some flexibility regarding the parameters by which the IRS compliance tests your plan will have to pass each year are run. Your 401(k) software will have your preferences hardwired into it so you can run accurate compliance tests as often as you like (we recommend monthly). 401(k) will keep you apprised of your plan's health and help ensure your plan passes its critical year-end tests.

The determination of Highly-Compensated versus Non-Highly-Compensated Employees for your plan will be based on the previous year's wages. Would you like your plan to limit the definition of Highly-Compensated Employees to "the top 20% of employee"?

23.What age requirement do you want for your 401(k) plan?

27.Employer contributions

If you plan to run your 401(k) as a safe harbor plan, please indicate any relevant safe harbor employer contributions at item 32 of this order form and DO NOT include your safe harbor contribution formula(s) herein under item 27 Employer Contributions. (click for more information)

Your company can contribute to plan participants' accounts in any of three ways:
(1) regular matching contributions,
(2) discretionary employer contributions, and/or
(3) qualified nonelective contributions.

Regular matching contributions (RMCs) are defined in terms of participant's elective contribution (e.g., 50¢ contributed by the employer for each dollar contributed by the plan participant). Discretionary employer contributions (DECs) are basically profit-sharing contributions, although the employer's contribution does not have to be limited to net profits. Qualified nonelective contributions (QNECs) are allocated on the basis of compensation or some other variable aside from a participant's elective contribution; they are made to ALL eligible employees regardless of whether or not the employee contributes to or participates in the 401(k) plan — unless the QNEC is being used to satisfy ADP or ACP test corrections. As for vesting, RMCs and DECs can be subject to vesting schedules, but QNECs are always 100% vested to employees' accounts when made.

1) Will your company be making any REGULAR MATCHING CONTRIBUTIONS to employees' accounts?

AND our company (check one) contribute an additional discretionary percentage, to be determined by our company.

2) Would your company like to have the option of being able to make DISCRETIONARY EMPLOYER CONTRIBUTIONS (i.e., profit-sharing contributions) to employees' accounts?

3) Would your company like to have the option of being able to make QUALIFIED NONELECTIVE CONTRIBUTIONS to employees' accounts?

32.Safe Harbor Designations

The IRS allows 401(k) plan sponsors an alternative to subjecting their 401(k) plans to annual discrimination testing. The safe harbor method of plan operation lets employers instead make certain contributions to the plan, with immediate vesting of the contributions to employees' 401(k) accounts.

Do you want to operate your 401(k) plan as a safe harbor 401(k) plan?

If you are choosing to operate your 401(k) plan as a safe harbor plan, which employer contribution formula would you like to employ?

If you are choosing to operate your 401(k) plan as a safe harbor MATCHING CONTRIBUTION plan, how often do you want your employer matching contributions to be made?
