WAC 415-501-580

How are the plan's assets protected for the exclusive benefit of participants and beneficiaries?

Despite any contrary provision of the plan, in accordance with Section 457(g) of the Internal Revenue Code, all compensation deferred under the plan, all property and rights purchased with such compensation, and all income attributable to such compensation, property, or rights will be held in trust for the exclusive benefit of participants and beneficiaries under the plan. Any trust under the plan will be established under the laws of Washington.
All amounts of compensation deferred under the plan will be transferred to a trust established under the plan within a period that is not longer than is reasonable for the proper administration of the accounts of participants. Under RCW 41.50.780(4) the state investment board is made trustee of state deferred compensation plan assets.
