The ever increasing number of laws and regulations impacting health and welfare plans, coupled with the rise in complaints filed by plan participants, has resulted in increased scrutiny by both the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Department of Labor (DOL) regarding compliance issues, not to mention an up-tick in costly litigation. With this focus in mind, and to assist you in meeting your fiduciary obligations in the event of an IRS or DOL audit, this webinar will take you through the necessary steps for performing a check-up on your health and welfare plans. We will also feature a discussion of common pitfalls, practical compliance tips, and best practices to help prevent, or at least minimize your exposure to an audit.
This webinar will be presented by Marilyn Monahan, Richard Asensio, and Nathan Ackeret.
