The obligation to pay premiums does not cease immediately on a plan's termination date. The obligation to make premium filings and pay premiums includes the plan year in which plan assets are distributed in satisfaction of all plan benefits or a trustee is appointed under ERISA Section 4042. This means that a premium must be paid through the plan year in which one of these occurrences takes place. As a result, a terminated plan may receive a Past Due Filing Notice if a required premium filing is missing or a Statement of Account if a required premium is late or insufficient.
If you believe no further premiums are due for your plan, see premium contact information on the Premium Filing page.
