CARES Act – Benefits Compliance & Retirement Provisions

April 01, 2020

The CARES Act also has several provisions relating to employee benefits, both on the health side and the retirement side, as well as a few miscellaneous provisions on fringe benefits (student loan repayment).

View this benefits compliance summary for more information.

Retirement

The CARES Act contains provisions meant to loosen access to money in retirement vehicles. It also contains provisions meant to alleviate certain retirement plan requirements, providing plan sponsors with the option to waive the 10% early withdrawal penalty on participant distributions of up to $100,000, increase participant loan limits, and suspend existing participant loan repayments for individuals impacted by COVID-19. In addition, the Act waives required minimum distributions to be paid in 2020, provides plan sponsors relief in delaying contribution due dates for defined benefit and money purchase pension plans, and empowers the Department of Labor with broad authority to extend certain notice deadlines.

For more information on the retirement provisions of the CARES Act, click here.

Benefits Compliance COVID-19 FAQ Webinar | May 26 at Noon ET

March 20, 2020

NFP’s Benefits Compliance team will address the impact of COVID-19, starting with the recently enacted Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). FFCRA includes new emergency paid sick leave requirements, expanded FMLA protections, and mandated COVID-19-related health insurance coverage requirements. We will also address COVID-19-related scenarios employers are now facing, including: 1) situations relating to benefit plan eligibility and coverage during a furlough, layoff or reduction in hours; 2) plan document and SPD issues; 3) ACA issues (including measurement and stability periods during a furlough/layoff); 4) COBRA responsibility and timing; 5) HDHP/HSA interaction with COVID-19 mandated coverage; 6) state issues (such as mandates on coverage, expansion of paid family and medical leave protections, and delayed filing requirements); and 7) HIPAA and other privacy issues.
