EFAST2 is an all-electronic simple way to process and submit Form 5500 or 5500-SF.
When the Pension Protection Act of 2006 was passed, Congress mandated that all Form 5500 filings be filed electronically starting with plan years beginning on or after January 1, 2009. The Department of Labor published their regulations regarding mandatory electronic filing for the Form 5500 Series called the EFAST2.
Note: If you are a Form 5500-EZ filer, your plan is not subject to the new electronic filing rules and will still be filed on paper.
