Lions, and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! Retirement Plan Issues in a Pandemic

Western Pension & Benefits Council - Orange County Chapter

Jan. 21, 2021
8:00 a.m.. - 9:45 a.m. PT

n this “pandemic economy” plan sponsors are having to make difficult corporate decisions which directly and indirectly impact their retirement plans. While none of these issues are new, they are on the rise and need to be on your radar and handled with care. Join us for an informative and timely session in which Sherrie Boutwell will discuss some of these issues, including:

  • Corporate reorganizations, including mergers and acquisitions, and spin-offs
  • Significant furloughs and layoffs, possibly resulting in partial plan terminations
  • Full plan terminations, as a result of company dissolution or as a cost-saving measure
  • Modification of employer/safe harbor contributions or complete freeze of plans
  • Orphan plans as a result of plan sponsor bankruptcy/dissolution/abandonment/sale of business
  • Increased loans and distributions/other fiduciary considerations
  • Effect of 2020 election/additional stimulus or other legislation changes due to pandemic
  • Impact on IRS and DOL enforcement and large plan audit considerations
