AUTHORITY FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF THE SYSTEM:
29 U.S.C. 1021 et seq.
ERISA and provisions of the Internal Revenue Code require certain employee benefit plans to submit information annually to the Federal government (EBSA, Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC)) through the Form 5500 series. One-participant plan filers are given the option to file Form 5500EZ on hard copy directly to the IRS or they may file electronically through EFAST2 using the Form 5500SF.
Note: This system of records is maintained by the Department of Labor for the benefit of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
ROUTINE USES OF RECORDS MAINTAINED IN THE SYSTEM, INCLUDING CATEGORIES OF USERS AND THE PURPOSE OF SUCH USES:
In addition to those universal routine uses listed in the General Prefatory Statement to this document, EFAST2 data is used for internal reporting by EBSA and furnished to three other Government Agencies: the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Social Security Administration (SSA), and PBGC.
Consistent with DOL's information sharing mission, information stored in EFAST2 may be shared with other DOL components, as well as appropriate Federal, State, local, tribal, foreign, or international government agencies. This sharing will only take place after it is determined that the receiving component or agency has a need to know the information to carry out functions consistent with the routine uses set forth in this system of records notice. The IRS uses one-participant Form 5500-SF data to administer requirements of I.R.C. 6058(a) and 6059(a).
