Regulation monitoring

In the realm of employee benefits and health care, the rules never stop evolving. Our Compliance team has its collective eyes on the regulations that affect what we do, meaning our clients and participants are quick to know when things change and what the effect is.

Document Updates
Employee Benefits Corporation updates documents once a year, more frequently when Federal regulations change. These document changes are initiated by our Compliance team and usually involve expert members from our other teams.

The Compliance team regularly communicates with legislators and lobbyists responsible for proposing and monitoring benefits legislation at both the state and federal level. This gives us an edge when it’s time to update our important plan documents, so we are not caught by surprise when changes occur.

Webinars
Our Compliance team presents educational webinars to help our clients understand technical details of their plans and administration. Conveniently, invitees can watch and listen, with their choice of session, from anywhere they have internet access.

Compliance Blog
Members of our Compliance team maintain our Compliance Buzz blog, addressing hot and timely compliance topics. Check back each week for new posts.
Nondiscrimination Testing
IRS regulations require both the BESTflexSM Plan and EBC HRASM to undergo annual nondiscrimination testing.

We provide a Nondiscrimination Testing Worksheet that is available online in both PDF and Excel format. Employers can use either version to provide the data we need in order to perform the testing. We’ve also created a Nondiscrimination Testing Workbook to help employers complete the Worksheet and to answer some frequently asked questions.

Nondiscrimination Testing materials are conveniently located in our employer portal, My Account Administrator. Employers simply log in, then access the documents from a central location.

We perform the testing on our BESTflex Plan clients’ behalf.
