November Compliance Webinar – A Continuing Conversation About COBRA
While the regulatory response to the pandemic has created a lot of new areas of focus for Benefits and Human Resources Professionals, other pre-pandemic employee benefit rules remain in force. Plan sponsors are responsible for administering these benefit requirements appropriately according to their prescribed rules and regulations. This includes compliance with the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, otherwise known as COBRA, which remains one of employers’ biggest and most complicated employee benefits issues.
Please join us as we discuss some of the common compliance concerns facing plan sponsors when handling COBRA compliance issues.
In this webinar, we will cover some of the COBRA basics, including:
- Employers subject to COBRA
- Plans subject to COBRA
- Qualified Beneficiaries
- Qualifying events
- COBRA premiums
- Notice requirements
We will also discuss common COBRA compliance issues you should consider if you are a plan sponsor.
