DOL Issues Additional Guidance Regarding the Duration of Previously Announced Deadline Extensions

March 9, 2021

Disaster Relief Notice 2021-01, in essence, provides that the one-year statutory limitation on the Agencies’ ability to extend deadlines should be applied separately for each participant and each event triggering a deadline that is subject to extension under the April 28, 2020 guidance, rather than to all events taken together with a single end date for applicable deadline extensions.
