Pixy,

<Gee, why not tell us how you really feel? :-) >

Sorry, sometimes this kind of thing just gets next to me.

<Indeed, it's often far better
to by-pass the employer and go directly to the plan administrator/custodian. >

I recommend this as a matter of course--that's what s/he's there for.

<They aren't the same usually, and the latter at least
has a better understanding of what needs to be done. Is the employer at fault for this? You betcha! But it's not something that
will change regardless of how much we scream.>

I disagree here. If we not just scream, but hold them accountable for their jobs, the performance gets better. And if we do it with a modicum of sugar, as you so often point out, it generally gets better sooner and more permanently. I just don't agree with the changelessness of it all.

Regards,

Eric
