ERISA Basics - What Your Benefit Plans Need You to Know

You will learn how to determine if your employee benefit plans are subject to ERISA and how to administer your plans in compliance with ERISA.

If you have any responsibility for administering your company's employee benefit plans, you need a working understanding of ERISA.  This session will review ERISA's basic provisions, including what employers and what benefits are subject to ERISA, and outline ERISA's administrative requirements.  There is no such thing as a dumb question in this session, just answers in plain English and practical advice for administering your employee benefit plans in compliance with ERISA.
