Developed by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and the Department of Labor (DOL), the Form 5500 for employee benefit plans provides information about a plan’s operation and compliance with government regulations.


All pension plans, welfare plans with a trust, and welfare benefit plans without a trust but with 100 or more participants are required to file Form 5500 with the Department of Labor (DOL) every year. Plan sponsors must generally file the return on the last day of the seventh month after their plan year ends, or they can file an extension that extends the due date further by two and a half months.
