14. Who is the administrator of the plan?
The administrator of an employee benefit plan is the individual or entity specifically designated in the
plan documents as the administrator. If the plan documents do not designate an administrator, the
administrator is the employer maintaining the plan, or, in the case of a plan maintained by more than
one employer, the association, committee, joint board of trustees, or similar group representing the
parties maintaining the plan. The name, address, and phone number of the plan administrator is
required to be included in the plan's summary plan description. The summary plan description is a
document that the administrator is required to furnish to each participant and to each beneficiary
receiving benefits. It summarizes the rights and benefits of participants and beneficiaries and the
obligations of the plan.
