The IRS announced that the Cycle 3 restatement period began on August 1, 2020 and ends on July 31,
2022. Kline, Keppel and Koryak’s document has pre-approved status and a favorable determination
letter from the IRS, just like in years past. As with prior restatements, we will convert each document to
the updated Cycle 3 document. All documents will need to be signed by July 31, 2022. Documents that
are on our system do not need to file individually for determination letters with the IRS.
During the next 18 months, we will be completing the restatement of each plan. Plans requesting
amendments during this period will be restated and automatically include any requested amendments.
Additionally, plans that are terminating will need to be restated to ensure that the plan language is in
compliance prior to termination.
