Please join us for Briggs and Morgan’s annual employee benefits update as we discuss how the world of employee benefits continues to evolve.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled earlier this year on the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. While the Act imposes a few new requirements in 2012 and 2013, employers are beginning to prepare for the most significant changes yet, namely, the “pay or play” requirement beginning in 2014.

Retirement plan sponsors are facing new requirements as well. The new fee disclosure rules became effective in 2012, and as a result, employers have new obligations and responsibilities with respect to their retirement plan service providers and participant disclosures, which we will review.

This update will cover what you need to know as you begin developing your 2014 health plan strategy, and will help you to understand and to work with the new fee disclosure rules.
