Employee Benefits Webinar: Benefits During Breaks-in-Service, Leaves, and Re-Hire Issues
Thursday, June 25, 2020

Wouldn’t it be nice if employees never missed a day of work or ever took a leave! Until then (when pig’s fly), one of the most difficult administrative issues employee benefits managers face is when employees have some kind of break-in-service that effects eligibility. Many different rules can apply in these circumstances. Employers may have to consider FMLA coverage requirements, ACA-related waiting periods and re-hire rules, and more. Plan eligibility could even be different depending on if the employer is using the monthly measurement, or the look-back measurement method to define full-time status. In this webinar we will help you sort out how to handle these “break-in-service” situations.

Employee Benefits Webinar: HSA Administration and Compliance
Thursday, July 23, 2020

Properly administering HSA benefits has always been difficult for employers. IRS rules are often complicated, and improper administration can lead to serious tax consequences for the employer and employees. New benefit arrangements such as concierge medical services and on-site medical clinics can create HSA eligibility issues, and now the IRS has issued new HSA guidance regarding telemedicine and direct primary care arrangements. This session will cover these important issues and other HSA compliance rules such as coordination with Medicare, employer contributions, and more.

Employee Benefits Webinar: Employee Benefits Compliance 2020 Mid-Year Update
Thursday, August 20, 2020

2020 has been a difficult year for human resource and employee benefits professionals for many obvious reasons. On top of everything else, there has not been this much change or new rules released in such a short span of time since the early days of the Affordable Care Act! This webinar will bring employers up-to-speed on the new and developing rules that apply to employer-sponsored health and welfare benefits. What is required and what is optional? What is temporary and what is permanent? What additional changes may be on the horizon?

Employee Benefits Webinar: Medicare and Employee Benefits
Thursday, September 24, 2020

Employee benefits managers face new issues as the workforce ages. As more active employees and their spouses become Medicare eligible, it is more important than ever for employers to understand how Medicare interacts with employer-sponsored benefits. This webinar will cover employee eligibility issues including:

  • HSA eligibility
  • Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) rules that prohibit employers form incenting employees to take Medicare
  • New ICHRA rules that permit employers to reimburse employees for Medicare coverage
  • The COBRA Medicare penalty trap some former employees face
  • And more!

You don’t have to be a member of AARP to join and learn a lot from this webinar.

All employee benefits webinars are held at 3 p.m. Eastern, 2 p.m. Central, Noon Pacific.
All benefit webinars are 60 minutes.
