EBSA is providing this Voluntary Fiduciary Correction Program (VFCP) Online Calculator as a compliance assistance tool to facilitate accuracy, ensure consistency, and expedite review of applications. The Online Calculator assists applicants in calculating VFCP Correction Amounts owed to benefit plans. Use of the Online Calculator by applicants is recommended, but is not mandatory. Applicants may perform manual calculations in accordance with VFCP Section 5(b), using the IRC underpayment rates and the IRS Factors.

Please note that using this calculator solely to determine and repay lost earnings does not constitute correction under the VFCP. The complete procedures for correcting under the VFCP may be found at https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2006/04/19/06-3674/voluntary-fiduciary-correction-program-under-the-employee-retirement-income-security-act-of-1974 or elsewhere on this web site. If you have any questions concerning the application process, please contact your local field office by calling 1-866-444-3272 and ask for the VFCP coordinator.
