 Announcement 2010-3 provides for automatic approval for certain changes in funding method that result either from a  change in the valuation software or change in the enrolled actuary.

Document Excerpt

This announcement provides, for plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2009, automatic approval for certain changes in funding method with respect to single-employer defined benefit plans that result either from a change in the valuation software used to determine the liabilities for such plans or from a change in the enrolled actuary and the business organization providing actuarial services to the plan. This guidance is being provided in response to numerous requests from actuaries and plan sponsors, many of whom are continuing to modify their valuation software in order to implement the changes to the funding rules made by the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA ’06), the Worker,Retiree, and Employer Recovery Act of 2008 (WRERA ’08), and guidance regarding these legislative changes.
