Risk/Exposure Calculator
The probability of a regulatory examination and the potential cost of penalties are estimated in a summary based on plan information. The probability is determined from the variance of plan expenses from industry averages and whether these expenses are reported to regulators. The cost of penalties is determined from the retroactive plan expenses if the plan is found to be in violation of prohibited transaction rules.
