Coverage Testing with Related Employers [2019]

FIS Relius Education

Feb. 19, 2019
Recorded Online
Webcast

The consequences of related employer (controlled group, affiliated service group) status are many, and often it can be very difficult to sort between them. But in plan design and testing, perhaps no related employer issue is more fundamental than coverage testing and including the right group of employees in the coverage test is a critical component of a properly performed test.

This seminar does not address whether employers are related; rather, it focuses on how the plan tests for coverage once you’ve determined it is part of a related employer group. The presenter will walk you through all the issues with clear analysis and detailed examples.

Topics include:

  • Service crediting
  • Testing mechanics
  • HCE status with related employers
  • Who’s benefitting and who is nonexcludable
  • Dealing with excludable employees with plans with varying eligibility requirements
  • Permissive plan aggregation
  • Average benefit percentage test with differing plans
  • Plan design considerations
  • Effect of the coverage transition rule
  • Multiple plans

Prerequisites:

There are no prerequisites or advance preparation for this program. However, the instructor assumes attendees have a basic understanding of related employer situations and coverage testing using the average benefit test and the ratio percentage test.

Level: Intermediate
Instructional Delivery Method
