This manual consists of the outline and original questions and solutions that are used by the author in his examination review courses. The 2017 edition has been updated to reflect changes from a final minimum funding regulation for single employer plans that was released during 2015, the phase-in on the use of stabilized interest rates, and changes made to the section dealing with IRC section 432, adding the new rules concerning critical and declining status. Some new examples were also added to that section. Finally, some corrections, clarifications, and a few new questions or updates to existing questions were added to this edition. The manual includes over 190 questions with detailed solutions. Note that this examination was referred to as the EA-2A examinations in years prior to 2013.

Your purchase includes study tips by the author, delivered as an unprotected PDF download (emailed upon confirmation of an order.)
