At the very end of 2020, President Trump signed the Consolidated Appropriations Act (CAA). Known popularly as the “Covid Relief Bill,” the CAA contains a number of provisions  that are important to employers and benefits professionals. Join us for a discussion of those provisions and their impact on retirement plans and health and welfare plans. We will discuss the new statutory provisions addressing:

  • For health plans:
    • Preventing surprise medical bills
    • Transparency, reporting, and disclosure
  • For retirement plans:
    • Partial plan termination relief
    • Disaster relief
  • For other plans:
    • Flexibility for healthcare and dependent care flexible spending accounts
    • Expansion of employer-based student loan repayment programs
