The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) contacted the American Retirement Association (ARA) on Friday, Aug 25, to clarify issues regarding erroneous notices sent to plan sponsors and advisors related to their supposed late filing of 2022 Form 8955-SSA.

The IRS confirmed that the issue was a programming glitch, which it fixed on Wednesday, August 23. The IRS said it is working on a newsletter article to notify the public of the issue and what to do with the notices.
