The IRS recently extended the deadline for defined benefit plan sponsors to adopt amendments to comply with Section 436 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the Code).  Code Section 436 was added by the Pension Protection Act of 2006 (PPA) and contains limitations on benefit payments and accruals for defined benefit plans that do not meet the funding targets required by PPA.
