Plan Administrator

The plan administrator is a person specifically designated by the terms of the plan. If the plan does not make such a designation, then the plan sponsor is generally the plan administrator. In the case of a plan for which an administrator is not designated and a plan sponsor cannot be identified, the administrator may be a person prescribed in regulations by the Secretary of Labor.
