ERISA Compliance: When Do You Need a Wrap Plan?

Sue Sieger, ACFCI, CAS, 60 minutes

DOL audits are on the rise, so it’s a good time to learn which plans are subject to ERISA and which ones should be included in a Wrap Plan. Insurance carrier booklets and certificates alone will not meet the plan document and summary plan description (SPD) requirements.

This session reviews what a Wrap Plan is, who needs one, and why. We'll answer questions like:

  • What plans are subject to ERISA?
  • What plans should be included in a Wrap Plan?
  • What are the consequences for not having a plan document and SPD for ERISA plans?

This session also covers Form 5500 filing requirements for health and welfare plans and the consequences of failing to file returns timely.

  • Learn about the benefits of a Mid-Year Takeover for FSAs & HRAs, which are bound by a plan year
  • See how changing in the middle of the year offers benefits for other administration too, like HSAs, COBRA, and commuter benefits
  • Get the details on how a Mid-Year Takeover affects participants and the steps employers take to make the change
