ERISA section 101(f) provides annual funding notice requirements for single-employer and multiemployer plans.
Single-Employer Plan Annual Funding Notices: Under section 101(f) of ERISA and guidance issued by the Department of Labor, starting with plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2008, single-employer plans with liabilities that exceed plan assets by more than $50 million must provide PBGC with a copy of the Annual Funding Notice by the Annual Funding Notice due date. Single-employer plans with liabilities that exceed plan assets by $50 million or less must provide PBGC with a copy of the Annual Funding Notice within 30 days of receiving a written request from PBGC. See Department of Labor regulations at 29 CFR 2520.101-5(j) (see also the final rule published in 80 FR 5626).
