Multiple Employer Plans: How MEPs Work for Private Employers

FIS Relius Education

Mar. 1, 2016
Recorded Online
[Recorded online and available for purchase.]

This is the first of two web seminars dealing with Multiple Employer Plans (MEPs). This program address the qualification and labor issues affecting MEPs for private employers. The second program looks at recent DOL rules to allow states to offer MEPs under favorable rules no private organization can compete with, as well as other state sponsored retirement plan options.

2012 Department of Labor Guidance on “open MEPs” answered some long-standing questions. Open MEPs are a series of separate plans under ERISA, not a single ERISA plan. However, some MEPs can still be treated as single ERISA plans.

Regardless of the type, multiple employer plans are complex and require careful thought and planning. In this Web seminar, Derrin Watson, author of "Who’s the Employer?", which extensively addresses PEOs and multiple employer plans, will discuss:

Common multiple employer plan situations
Design strategies
Qualification rules
PEO-specific rules
Recent DOL Guidance
ERISA status
5500 Filing
Fiduciary responsibility
Correcting errors

There are no prerequisites or other advanced preparation for this program. However, the speaker will assume that attendees understand the operation of 401(k) plans in general and have one year of experience. The speaker will not assume prior experience with multiple employer plans.
