Chapter 11 and Chapter 7 filings often include retirement plans that must be terminated. A plan cannot be terminated until all of the plan’s assets have been distributed, and prior to any distribution from the plan, the plan administrator/trustee must follow required IRS and Department of Labor (DOL) guidelines. Many times the trustee has neither the professional staff nor the financial reserves to fulfill the responsibilities of the plan administrator and terminate the plan.
