PTE 03–39. Granted on December 31, 2005, PTE 03–39 exempts from certain restrictions of ERISA and certain taxes imposed by the Code, transactions arising out of the settlement of litigation that involve the release of claims against parties in interest in exchange for payment by or on behalf of the party in interest, provided that certain conditions are met, including the following information collections: • Written Agreement. The terms of the settlement must be specifically described in a written agreement or consent decree. Because it is usual and customary business practice to reduce the terms of a settlement agreement to writing, there is no additional burden associated with this requirement. • Acknowledgement by Fiduciary. The fiduciary acting on behalf of the plan must acknowledge in writing that s/he is a fiduciary with respect to the settlement of the litigation. It is anticipated that this acknowledgement will be included in the written investment management or trustee agreement outlining the terms and conditions of the fiduciary’s retention as a plan service provider.

Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profits. Estimated Number of Respondents: 30,458. Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 1,093,173. Total Estimated Annual Costs Burden (excludes hourly wage costs): $21,630,572. Description: Public Law 108–218 amended section 101(f) of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) to require plan administrators of a defined benefit plan which is a multiemployer plan to each plan year furnish a plan funding notice to each plan participant and beneficiary, to each labor organization representing such participants or beneficiaries, to each employer that has an obligation to contribute under the plan, and to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. In August 2006, section 501(a) of the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA) expanded the annual notice requirement to single-employer defined benefit plans. Section 501(c) of the PPA directs PO 00000 Frm 00095 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21405 the Department to publish a model of the notice required by section 101(f) of ERISA, as amended, not later than one year after the date of enactment of the PPA. Recently, concerns have been expressed about the imminent compliance date of the new annual funding notice requirements, the absence of regulatory guidance from the Department, and the cost and burdens attendant to annual funding notice compliance efforts prior to the adoption of annual funding notice regulations and the issuance of model annual funding notices by the Department. In recognition of the foregoing, on February 10, 2009, the Department issued a Field Assistance Bulletin 2009– 1 (the FAB) concerning the disclosure requirements mandated by the PPA, which provides model notices. The FAB addresses the need for interim guidance pending the adoption of regulations or other guidance under section 101(f) of ERISA by providing that pending further guidance, the Department will, as a matter of enforcement policy, treat a plan administrator as satisfying the requirements of section 101(f), if the administrator complies with the guidance contained in the FAB (and appropriately uses a completed model notice) and has acted in accordance with a good faith, reasonable interpretation of those requirements with respect to matters not specifically addressed in the FAB. The Department is revising its information collection under OMB Control Number 1210–0126 to reflect the issuance of the FAB at this time.
