Sheri Fitts, marketing Guru of The Standard, and I put on a webcast which detailed the steps an advisor can take in assisting their clients in winding their way through the maze of ERISA issues that 403(b) plans need to deal with. This webcast includes some thoughts on moving a plan from non-ERISA status to ERISA status. The webcast is just over 45 minutes long, and can be accessed for free by following this link. There is an accompanying, detailed checklist, which you can download by this link.
