Are you a business owner?
One of the biggest things Mr.Sullivan and his team can help your business with is avoiding (DOL) issues!
Mr. Sullivan and his team will help protect your business from the unknown!
As your agent, my team and I will help keep you abreast of all the latest government ERISA requirements. Let me regress a little of November 21, 2000, the Department of Labor (DOL) published regulations on the information that must be included in Summary Plan Descriptions (SPD) for both pension and welfare benefit plans. Over the next couple of years, the regulations were finalized. With the introduction of the Affordable Care Act! "Erisa" (SPD) requirements are receiving new attention.
Employers are required to provide a V/rap SPD to all eligible employees and maintain a Wrap Plan Document or incur a penalty. This requirement applies to all employers/organizations, no matter what size, except government agencies and churches. The government is reviewing this requirement more carefully and increasingly performing audits to ensure employer compliance.
What is an (SPD)? Employers who offer benefits (referred to as "health and welfare" benefits: medical, dental, vision, life, DI, wellness and employee assistance plans) subject to ERISA are required to distribute a 'summary plan description' (SPD) to participants, which describes (in a readable, summary form) the key terms of the plan (such as benefits offered, eligibility requirements, and costs) and includes other mandated information (such as plan sponsor information). In other words - an overview of the benefits being offered with carrier information.
What are the penalties? Employers/plan administrators may be liable for serious penalties if they don't provide an (SPD) or have a current plan document: Failure to provide an (SPD) or plan document within 30 days of receiving a request from a plan participant or beneficiary can result in a penalty of up to $110/day per participant or beneficiary for each violation. Lack of an (SPD) could trigger a plan audit by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Failure to furnish to the (DOL) any requested information relating to the employee benefit plan can result in a penalty of up to $149 per day (not to exceed $1,496 per request)
