What Is Universal Availability/Meaningful Notice?
IRS regulations state that, "The 403(b) universal availability requirement provides that all employees must be given the opportunity to have elective deferrals contributed on their behalf, if any employee is given the opportunity to make elective deferrals." While there are some exceptions to this requirement, it is the recommendation of OMNI/TSACG that all employees, regardless of status (full or part-time) be permitted to participate in the 403(b) plan. In other words, any employee with wages reported on a W-2 should be considered eligible to make elective deferrals into a 403(b) account under the plan.
