Health & Welfare, Fringe Benefits


Health & welfare plans, and other fringe benefits, are an important part of a complete employee benefit package. However, compliance issues for these benefits have not always been given the same attention that retirement plan benefits receive from employers.  With an increase in requirements for these benefits, particularly health plan benefits, and a new focus by the government on compliance audits of these benefits, expert counsel is more important than ever. Our years of experience  working with employers, brokers, consultants, and third-party administrators  helps ensure that health and welfare plans meet all of the legal requirements for compliance with a wide range of laws that impact such plans.
