Abstract

This article discusses the doctrine of scrivener's error as it relates to plan drafting mistakes. There is no denying that inadvertent errors occur in retirement plan documents. Pretending that honest mistakes never happen is irresponsible, and zero tolerance.

Keywords: plan drafting mistakes, retirement
