Multiple Employer Plans: The Latest on MEPs and PEPs [2019]

FIS Relius Education

Feb. 13, 2019
Recorded Online
Webcast

2012 Department of Labor Guidance on “open MEPs” answered some long-standing questions but created many more. Open MEPs are a series of separate plans under ERISA, not a single ERISA plan. However, “closed” MEPs can still be treated as single plans under ERISA. The so-called “one bad apple rule” creates risks to participating employers, but MEPs have many potential administrative and cost advantages over single-employer plans.

The President, Congress, and the Department of Labor have all recently weighed in on the potential benefits of, and the need for changes to MEPs, and Congress has proposed the creation of Pooled Employer Plans (PEPs) as an alternative. This seminar will review the current and proposed MEP and PEP landscape.

Topics include:

  • Common multiple employer plan situations
    • Risks and Benefits
  • Design strategies
  • Qualification rules
    • Service
    • Compensation
    • Testing
    • Top-heavy
    • PEO-specific rules
  • DOL MEP Guidance – Past and proposed
    • ERISA status
    • 5500 Filing
    • Audits
    • Bonds
    • Fiduciary responsibility
  • Correcting errors
  • Potential legislative and regulatory changes
