Failure to meet even one ERISA reporting and disclosure requirement can cost thousands in penalties and lawsuits. Three out of four employers are not maintaining sufficient plan documents or providing employees with SPDs.  ERISA provides significant protections for participants in employee welfare benefit plans and their beneficiaries. ERISA imposes a variety of reporting and disclosure requirements on administrators of welfare benefit plans. These requirements mandate that certain financial and other plan information be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) & the Department of Labor (DOL) and be disclosed to plan participants and their beneficiaries. BIG-HR's Benefits Compliance Package allows you to improve compliance, simplify administration & protect your company and benefits.
