Defined Benefit (DB) Plan Termination Best Practices - Part Two
Once you develop a termination strategy for your hard-frozen defined benefit (DB) plan, it is critical to execute that strategy efficiently to terminate the plan as quickly and cost effectively as possible.
Best practices for efficient management of hard-frozen DB plans leading up to and throughout the termination process should focus on:

- Reduction of plan sponsor financial risk
Our analysis centers on how employers can work effectively with their financial professional and efficiently integrate a plan's actuary and other retirement plan service provider(s) in the termination process.

- Effective execution of a Dynamic Asset Allocation (DAA) strategy
- Plan sponsor administration of the termination process
- Final risk transfer
