Long-Term, Part-Time Employees IRS Proposed Regulations

On November 24, 2023, the IRS released the long-awaited Proposed Regulations addressing the changes made by the SECURE Act and SECURE 2.0 related to long-term, part-time employees (“LTPTs”) in 401(k) plans.  While the IRS uses the name ‘long-term, part-time employees’ in the Proposed Regulations, these rules apply to part-time, seasonal and other types of reduced-hours workers, and could potentially apply to even some full-time employees if a plan uses hours to determine eligibility to participate.  The Proposed Regulations would amend Treasury Regulation 1.401(k)-5 to reflect the LTPT rules and would be applicable for plan years that begin on or after January 1, 2024.
