Beginning this year, employers that sponsor 401(k) plans must satisfy a new requirement.  401(k) plans must allow certain part-time employees to make voluntary 401(k) contributions.  These part-time employees must be at least 21 years of age and work at least 500 hours for three consecutive years, starting with the plan year beginning during 2021.  Thus employees won’t be eligible to participate in a plan because of this rule any sooner than plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2024.  But companies must begin this year to keep track of the hours worked by part-time employees.

DISCLAIMER: Because of the generality of this update, the information provided herein may not be applicable in all situations and should not be acted upon without specific legal advice based on particular situations.
