The employer maintaining the plan or the plan administrator of a Pension or Welfare benefit plan covered by ERISA and for every entity that files as a Direct Filing Entity (DFE) must generally file Form 5500.

Parts of Form 5500

  1. Enter the Annual Return/Report Identification Information under Part I.
  2. Enter the Basic Plan Information and choose the applicable schedules under Part II.
