Title:Reconnecting Former Employees with their Retirement Funds
Description:Few would argue that the advent of Automatic Enrollment in retirement plans has been anything short of successful. But like so many great ideas, it’s success has been accompanied by unintended consequences. For automatic enrollment, that unintended consequence is a dramatic increase in the number of accounts left behind by former employees, which government research shows is in the millions annually. The Department of Labor has taken notice and emphasized the importance of locating missing participants for plan sponsors and providers.

Regulations might require eligible participants to be automatically enrolled in a 401(k) plan until and unless they specifically opt out. The plan could also require this automatic enrollment to be at a specified contribution rate which could go up over time. Even though participants might usually set their own contribution rates or amounts, this might still be something the recordkeeper needs to deal with. Fortunately, Relius Administration has several tools available to help manage this process easily and efficiently.
