Mid-Year Employee Benefits Administration: Managing Election Changes And Complying With New ACA Rules
|Date / Time:
Administering mid-year changes to benefit elections can be difficult. Some changes are optional, while others are mandatory. Some events allow changes to some benefits, while others do not.
One question that comes up often is, How can an employer be as accommodating to participants as possible while still protecting the qualified status of its benefits?
There’s also the new optional ACA-responsive change rules, which raises the question of whether a plan will allow for all possible mid-year changes.
Join us for a comprehensive webinar, led by skilled benefits attorneys Callan G. Carter and Jennifer D. Truong, as they share best practices for complying with mid-year change rules applying to your employee benefits.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
