when an exec compensation package includes "welfare benefits" in its definition, what welfare benefits are being referred to (in general)? Where would I find this information?

In general it includes all fringe benefits. Line 8b of form 5500 and the instructions therefor include the following under "Welfare Benefit Features": health, life insurance, supplemental unemployment, dental, vision, disability, vision, prepaid legal, severance pay, apprenticeship & training, scholarship and travel accident benefits.
