For many pension plans, it’s that time of year - Annual Funding Notice (AFN) season. AFNs need to be sent to plan participants and beneficiaries no later than 120 days after the close of the plan year. Communicating the plan’s funding status is mandatory, but it, and other retirement plan notices, often requires significant time and resources on behalf of the plan administrator including preparing and sending communication, managing returned mail, locating and finding new addresses, and tracking/documenting all efforts for audit purposes.
