HRA Document Refers to 'Discretionary' Contributions But Then Lists 2008 Maximums
BenefitsLink Message BoardsLink to more items from this source
Oct. 8, 2021

"I was able to obtain a copy of the HRA plan document, and the language is, shall we, a bit sparse, and not terribly enlightening. But here goes.

Plan was established in 2008. In the adoption agreement, under 'Maximum Benefits Per Coverage Period' it says: 'Other: A discretionary amount to be announced by the Employer at the beginning of each Coverage Period.' It then goes on to list the maximums for 2008.

So here's the question-- the coverage limits have been increased several times since then. Do you think this language would be sufficient, if the amounts are properly communicated to employees each year, or should a Plan amendment have been done each time the limits increased?"
