Summary of Proposal:
This regulation amends Regulation 909 to extend the solvency funding moratorium for SOMEPPs for five years, to August 31, 2017. The moratorium would be provided to certain multi-employer pension plans which have made an election to become a SOMEPP.

SOMEPPs continue to be required to target full funding on a going-concern basis.

This extension will allow the development of a long-term comprehensive regulatory system for these MEPPs, including those which are multi-jurisdictional.
