This memo addresses only the application of IRC § 403(b)(10) to certain circumstances involving a 403(b) plan’s actions related to a benefit of a participant or beneficiary whom the plan is unable to locate and does not address the application of any other requirements or other applicable law, including Title I of ERISA. This is not a pronouncement of law and is not subject to use, citation, or reliance as such.
