Text of DOL Final Regs: Delay of Applicability Date for Claims Procedure for Plans Providing Disability Benefits
23 pages. "This document delay s for ninety [90] days -- through April 1, 2018 -- the applicability of a final rule amending the claims procedure requirements applicable to ERISA-covered employee benefit plans that provide disability benefits (Final Rule). The Final Rule was published in the Federal Register on December 19, 2016, became effective on January 18, 2017, and was scheduled to become applicable on January 1, 2018. The delay announced in this document is necessary to enable the [DOL] to carefully consider comments and data as part of its effort, pursuant to Executive Order 13777, to examine regulatory alternatives that meet its objectives of ensuring the full and fair review of disability benefit claims while not imposing unnecessary costs and adverse consequences."
Employee Benefits Security Administration [EBSA], U.S. Department of Labor [DOL]
