This section provides an overview of what registered Plan Sponsor information can and cannot be changed, who can make changes to Plan Sponsor information, and how a Plan Sponsor is notified of information changes.
This section provides an overview of the following topics:
Plan Sponsor information cannot be changed until the Account Manager and the Plan Sponsor have passed initial validation in the RDS Secure Website.
IMPORTANT: Account Manager (AM) and Authorized Representative (AR) reassignments do not take effect immediately. Please complete all reassignments well ahead of Application and Reconciliation deadlines to ensure smooth transition.
A newly appointed AM or AR can be granted access to the RDS Secure Website (SWS) on the same day that the role reassignment is performed. However, that person will not have access to the Plan Sponsor account itself, or any associated applications, until after the termination date of the previous AM/AR has passed. This means the new user cannot view or modify any information for that Plan Sponsor until at least the next day. When reassigning these roles, please remember:
These major concepts are explained in detail in the Reassigning the Authorized Representative (AR) and Account Manager (AM) Roles Technical Article. Please review this material and plan ahead for your Application and Reconciliation Deadlines. Failure to do so may result in a missed deadline and possible loss of subsidy. Refer to Reassign the Account Manager and Authorized Representative Roles for additional important information.
Note: Refer to Report a Change of Plan Sponsor EIN or Company Name for information if the Plan Sponsor's Employer Identification Number or Organization Name must be changed.
The Account Manager is the only RDS Secure Website user that has the authority to change Plan Sponsor information. The Authorized Representative, Designee, and Actuary can view Plan Sponsor information.
The current Account Manager or Authorized Representative has the authority to reassign the Account Manager and/or Authorized Representative user roles.
When the Account Manager changes any of the Plan Sponsor information, the Account Manager and the Authorized Representative will receive an email notification of all changes made.
When either the Account Manager or Authorized Representative user roles are reassigned, or when a pending user role reassignment is cancelled, the current Account Manager and the Authorized Representative, as well as the newly reassigned user, will receive email notifications of the changes.
