Within each failure, check applicable boxes, and provide the information requested.) A. Employer Eligibility Failure The plan was adopted by a plan sponsor who was (or subsequently became) ineligible to sponsor a SIMPLE IRA plan under the requirements of Section 408(p) of the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) because the plan sponsor (and, if applicable, its related controlled group or affiliated service group employers) had more than 100 employees (including leased employees, if applicable) who earned $5,000 or more in compensation during the following plan year(s) The plan was adopted by a plan sponsor who was not eligible to sponsor a SIMPLE IRA plan under the requirements of IRC Section 408(p) because the plan sponsor established or maintained a another tax favored retirement plan under IRC Sections 401(a), 403(b) and 408(k)with respect to which contributions were made (or under which benefits were accrued) during any plan year of the SIMPLE IRA plan.

Form 14568-D (Rev. 9-2017) Page 2 Plan name EIN Plan number Description of the Proposed Method of Correction The plan sponsor has contributed (or will contribute) additional amounts to the plan on behalf of each affected employee. For each affected employee, the corrective contribution will be determined by calculating the contribution the employee would have been entitled to receive under the terms of the plan and subtracting any contributions already made on behalf of the employee for the plan year. The corrective contribution made on behalf of an affected employee will be adjusted for earnings. Earnings will be calculated from the last day of the plan year for which the failure occurred through the date of the corrective contribution. The corrective contribution (adjusted for earnings) will be made to each affected employee’s SIMPLE IRA. If an affected employee does not have a SIMPLE IRA, an account will be established for that employee. If the plan did not provide eligible employees with the opportunity to make elective deferrals and the plan provides for matching contributions, the corrective matching contribution will be based on the assumption that the eligible employee would have made an elective deferral equal to 3% of compensation. The total corrective contribution (before adjusting for earnings) for each plan year is Year Corrective Contribution The earnings calculation for an affected employee will be based on one of the following methods (check one) Actual investment results of the affected employee’s SIMPLE IRA. The interest rate incorporated in the Department of Labor’s Voluntary Fiduciary Correction Program Online Calculator (VFCP Online Calculator) (http://www.dol.gov/ebsa/calculator/main.html), since the actual earnings of the affected employee’s IRA cannot be ascertained. Actual investment results for years in which data for the affected employee is available, and the rate incorporated in the VFCP Online Calculator for years in which the actual investment results of the affected employee’s IRA cannot be ascertained. The VFCP Online Calculator was or will be used for the following year(s) Former employees affected by the failure (check one) There are no former employees affected by the failure. Affected former employees (or if deceased, their estate or known beneficiary) will be contacted, and corrective contributions will be made to their SIMPLE IRAs. To the extent that an affected former employee or beneficiary cannot be located following a mailing to the last known address, the plan sponsor will take the actions specified below to locate that employee or beneficiary After such actions are taken, if an affected employee or beneficiary is not found but is located at a later date, the plan sponsor will make corrective contributions to the affected SIMPLE IRA at that time. Catalog Number 66148F www.irs.gov Form 14568-D (Rev. 9-2017) Page 3 Plan name EIN Plan number C. Failure to Provide Eligible Employees with the Opportunity to Make Elective Deferrals. The plan sponsor did not provide employee(s) who satisfied the applicable eligibility requirements with the opportunity to make elective deferrals to the SIMPLE IRA plan. The failure occurred for the following plan year(s) Description of the Proposed Method of Correction The plan sponsor has contributed (or will contribute) additional amounts to the plan on behalf of each affected employee. The corrective contribution will be made to compensate the affected employee(s) for the missed deferral opportunity. The corrective contribution on behalf of each affected employee is equal to 50% of what the employee’s deferral might have been had he or she been provided with the opportunity to make elective deferrals to the plan. Since the employee’s deferral decision is not known, the deferral amount is estimated by assuming that the excluded employee would have made an elective deferral equal to 3% of his or her compensation. (Example: N, a nonhighly compensated employee was erroneously excluded from the plan. During the year of exclusion, N made $10,000 in compensation. N’s missed deferral is estimated to be: 3% times $10,000 or $300. The required corrective contribution on behalf of N, before adjusting for earnings, is 50% of $300 or $150). Thus, the required corrective contribution for an employee who was erroneously excluded from making elective deferrals from a SIMPLE IRA plan is equal to 1.5% of compensation (adjusted for earnings). The total corrective contribution (before adjusting for earnings) on behalf of the affected employees for each plan year is Year Corrective Contribution The corrective contribution made on behalf of each affected employee will also be adjusted for earnings. Earnings will be calculated from the date(s) that the contribution(s) should have been made through the date of the corrective contribution. The corrective contribution (adjusted for earnings) will be made to each affected employee’s SIMPLE IRA. If an affected employee does not have a SIMPLE IRA, a SIMPLE IRA will be established for that employee. Earnings will be calculated on the basis of one of the following methods (check one) Actual investment results of the affected employee’s SIMPLE IRA. The interest rate incorporated in the VFCP Online Calculator, since the actual earnings of the affected employee’s IRA cannot be ascertained. Actual investment results for years in which data for the affected employee is available, and the rate incorporated in the VFCP Online Calculator for years in which the actual investment results of the affected employee’s IRA cannot be ascertained. The VFCP Online Calculator was or will be used for the following year(s) Catalog Number 66148F www.irs.gov Form 14568-D (Rev. 9-2017) Page 4 Plan name EIN Plan number Former employees affected by the failure (check one) There are no former employees affected by the failure.

After such actions are taken, if an affected employee or beneficiary is not found but is located at a later date, the plan sponsor will make corrective contributions to the affected SIMPLE IRA at that time.

The earnings adjustment will be based on the actual rates of return of the participant’s SIMPLE IRA from the date(s) that the excess deferrals were made through the date of correction. Affected participants were (or will be) informed that the distribution of an excess amount is not eligible for favorable tax treatment accorded to distributions from a SIMPLE IRA and, specifically, is not eligible for tax-free rollover.
