Changes To Cafeteria Plans: What You Need To Know To Prepare
|Date / Time:
Employers often permit their employees to pay for some of their welfare benefits on a pre-tax basis or to make pre-tax contributions to health and dependent care spending accounts.
However, many do not know about the cafeteria plan requirements that must be satisfied to permit these pre-tax reductions in compensation. They also are often unaware of the pace at which those cafeteria plan rules are changing in response to federal legislative and judicial action.
Not understanding the cafeteria plan rules can lead to adverse tax consequences for both the employer and their employees.
This webinar will help persons responsible for cafeteria plan administration and compliance understand the foundation requirements applicable to every cafeteria plan and inform them of how the landscape is rapidly changing. Employers will be provided tools to help them ensure that their cafeteria plan design, documentation and administration are in compliance with applicable requirements.
Explore design choices cafeteria plan sponsors can consider within the regulatory framework established by the IRS. Receive information you need to decide what if any changes to make in response to the rapidly changing landscape of cafeteria plan 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.
