Legal definition of Employee Retirement Income Security Act: provided for the regulation of private pension plans. The law stipulated capitalization, membership, and operating requirements and altered vestment formulas to include, for example, mandatory employee vestment after a certain period of time. The law also required pension-fund operators to make periodic reports on the conditions and activities of the fund. Oversight of the Acts provisions was assigned to the newly created Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. The law also provided for regulation of employee welfare benefit plans, such as group health plans, disability insurance plans, or other plans, funds, or programs benefiting employees. Provisions of the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1986 (COBRA), codified at 29 U.S.C. § 1161 et seq., provide for continuation of ERISA benefits under such a plan to eligible employees upon termination of employment..

SALT LAKE CITY - Two individuals adequately allege that their insurer imposes coverage standards on mental health services that it does not impose on analogous services in the medical and surgical setting, and nothing precludes them from bringing their Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act claim in addition to an Employee Retirement Income Security Act action, a federal judge in Utah said Sept. 24 (Denise M. v. Cigna Health and Life Insurance Co., et al., No. 19-764, D. Utah, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 176154).
A In 1974, after careful study of private retirement pension plans, Congress enacted the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), 88 Stat. 829, 29 U.S.C. § 1001 et seq. Among the principal purposes of this comprehensive and reticulated statute was to ensure that employees and their beneficiaries would not be deprived of anticipated retirement benefits by the termination of pension plans before sufficient funds have been accumulated in the plans. Nachman Corp. v. Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., 446 U. S. 359, 446 U. S. 361-362, 446 U. S. 374-375 (1980). See Alessi v. Raybestos-Manhattan, Inc., 451 U. S. 504, 451 U. S. 510-511 (1981).

The U.S. Supreme Court justices are grappling with the question of whether pension plans maintained by religiously affiliated organizations-such as plans offered by some hospitals and schools-are exempt from the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ER
A retirement plan is a financial arrangement designed to replace employment income upon retirement. These plans may be set up by employers, insurance companies, trade unions, the government, or other institutions. Congress has expressed a desire to encourage responsible retirement planning by granting favorable tax treatment to a wide variety of plans. Federal tax aspects of retirement plans in the United States are based on provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and the plans are regulated by the Department of Labor under the provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Retirement plans are classified as either defined benefit plans or defined contribution plans, depending on how benefits are determined. In a defined benefit (or pension) plan, benefits are calculated using a fixed formula that typically factors in final pay and service with an employer, and payments are made from a trust fund specifically dedicated to the plan. Separate accounts for each participant do ...
Syllabus. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), enacted in 1974, created a pension plan termination insurance program whereby the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC), a wholly owned Government corporation, collects insurance premiums from covered private retirement pension plans and provides benefits to participants if their plan terminates with insufficient assets to support its guaranteed benefits. For multiemployer pension plans, the PBGCs payment of guaranteed benefits was not to become mandatory until January 1, 1978. During the intervening period, the PBGC had discretionary authority to pay benefits upon the termination of such plans. If the PBGC exercised its discretion to pay such benefits, employers who had contributed to the plan during the five years preceding its termination were liable to PBGC in amounts proportional to their share of the plans contributions during that period. As the mandatory coverage date approached, Congress became concerned that a ...
Petitioners (collectively Carle) function as a health maintenance organization (HMO) owned by physicians providing prepaid medical services to participants whose employers contract with Carle for coverage. Respondent Herdrich was covered by Carle through her husband s employer, State Farm Insurance Company. After petitioner Pegram, a Carle physician, required Herdrich to wait eight days for an ultrasound of her inflamed abdomen, her appendix ruptured, causing peritonitis. She sued Carle in state court for, inter alia, fraud. Carle responded that the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) preempted the fraud counts and removed the case to federal court. The District Court granted Carle summary judgment on one fraud count, but granted Herdrich leave to amend the other. Her amended count alleged that the provision of medical services under terms rewarding physician owners for limiting medical care entailed an inherent or anticipatory breach of an ERISA fiduciary duty, since the ...

Annual Review of Plans Funded Status. This measure requires the administrator of each defined benefit retirement plan for current employees to obtain an independent review of the plans assets and liabilities and determine the plans funding status each year. This independent review would have to follow potentially stricter standards than those currently used by Californias defined benefit public pension systems-specifically, the accounting standards and assumptions established by federal law for private-sector pension plans, including those established by the federal Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). If the independent review determines that a plans assets cover less than 80 percent of its liabilities, based on the standards included in the measure, the plan would be considered at risk. Once a plan is considered at risk, the public employer would be required to either (1) appropriate the funds necessary to fund the plan above the at-risk level or (2) find and declare that ...
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals and its various district courts saw a dramatic increase in class action activity in 2008. Fifth Circuit courts decided 24 cases in 2008 that substantively address Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23 (Rule 23). By way of contrast, Fifth Circuit courts in 2007 decided only 17 cases that substantively addressed Rule 23. In 2007, Fifth Circuit courts certified five classes. Ironically, this year they certified just two.. This year, Fifth Circuit courts addressed Rule 23 issues impacting securities litigation, the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), the Class Action Fairness Act, Vioxx and Fen-Phen drug litigation, prisoners rights, and immigration law. Like last year, several Hurricane Katrina and Rita-related class action cases made their way onto Louisiana and Mississippi dockets..

Last fall, EBRI surveyed a cross-section of large employers to better understand their attitudes towards employment-based health benefits and the overall health care financing and delivery system. Benefit directors and vice presidents of human resources were included in the interviews, as was one chief financial officer. Collectively, these employers covered more than 650,000 workers. Combined employer/worker health benefits spending for these employers totaled over $4 billion in 2006. When asked what would cause an employer to stop offering health benefits, the employers provided mixed responses. They say the elimination of the employer tax deduction; movement to a universal system; and erosion and/or elimination of the federal pre-emption of state insurance regulation as provided by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) could mean the end of large employer self-funded employment-based health benefits as we know them. They also said that, if other employers dropped ...
In Rutledge v. Pharmaceutical Care Management Association the Supreme Court will decide whether states attempts to regulate pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) drug-reimbursement rates are preempted by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).. PBMs are an intermediary between health plans and pharmacies. Among other things, they set reimbursement rates to pharmacies dispensing generic drugs. Contracts between PBMs and pharmacies create pharmacy networks. According to the Eighth Circuit, [b]ased upon these contracts and in order to participate in a preferred network, some pharmacies choose to accept lower reimbursements for dispensed prescriptions. So, in some instance pharmacies lose money.. Arkansas passed a law requiring that pharmacies be reimbursed for generic drugs at a price equal to or higher than the pharmacies cost for the drug based on the invoice from the wholesaler.. ...

Archived News Release - Caution: Information may be out of date.. Washington - The U.S. Department of Labor today announced a proposed regulation for assessing civil penalties against plan administrators who fail to disclose certain documents to participants, beneficiaries and others as required by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, as amended by the Pension Protection Act (PPA).. The PPA established new disclosure provisions relating to: funding-based limits on benefit accruals and certain forms of benefit distributions; plan actuarial and financial reports; withdrawal liability of contributing employers; and participants rights and obligations under automatic contribution arrangements. The PPA gives the department authority to assess civil monetary penalties of up to $1,000 per day against plan administrators for violations of the new disclosure requirements. The proposed regulation sets forth the administrative procedures for assessing and contesting such penalties and does not ...
Under Federal, State, and local law, there is general protection for handicapped employees. While these laws generally do not address AIDS specifically, a U.S. Supreme Court decision recently held that a communicable disease may be considered a handicap within the meaning of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act. Thus, employers must be cognizant of their potential liability in cases involving employees or applicants with AIDS. In addition, a number of common law claims may be available to AIDS-infected individuals if adverse employment action is taken against them. These may include cases based on wrongful discharge when an employee is discharged for reasons contrary to a public interest. Additional claims could arise with respect to an employees right to privacy and defamation of character. Other statutes with implications for employees with AIDS include provisions of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act, forbidding the termination of an employee in order to deprive him or her of medical ...

The lackluster economy, eroding traditional pensions, and volatile stock market suggest that baby boomers - those born between 1945 and 1965 - face increasingly uncertain retirements. Our projections show that lower - and moderate-income boomers will continue to rely on Social Security for most of their retirement income. While the projections reflect some good news - women will reap the rewards of working and earning more than previous generations - they also raise alarms. Between 30 and 40 percent of boomers will not have enough income at age 70 to replace 75 percent of their preretirement earnings, a common standard for measuring retirement income adequacy.. ...

That might be a fair question, but the issue is that, at least a couple of weeks ago, Cullerton was basically saying tax everything (i.e. Wirtz had standing to sue, so substitute a cigarette tax for the liquor one), retirement income, etc., without saying anything about getting spending under control. While Cullerton was fairly upfront about that (he said that year that the Senate had passed the income tax hike to 5% that was sitting in the house), you demonstrate here that he generally is a liar (the retirement income tax didnt come out of thin air).. Even when Cullerton was talking about it, he was talking out of both sides of his mouth, saying how much it would bring in if retirement pay were taxed at the full 5%, then saying that would allow the 5% rate to go down, and then, when questioned, proposing all sorts of exemptions.. Of course, Quinn has consistently proved that his word is no good.. So, maybe before floating this idea, maybe Cullerton should do something to rehabilitate his ...

When the new fiscal year begins on Monday, senior citizens and those closing-in on retirement may start to get a little encouragement to stay in
In recent years, Canada has significantly expanded and improved its retirement income and pension system. The Canada Pension Plan (CPP), which provides Canadians with income security in the case of retirement or disability, has been expanded, and its defined benefit plans for government employees has managed to avoid many of the funding problems plaguing comparable U.S. plans. The country is also making advances in expanding coverage to moderate-and-lower income Canadians. But theres still work to be done, particularly in improving efforts to target policies to low-to-moderate income workers.. How was Canada able to achieve this expansion, and is there anything in the Canadian experience that Americans can use to advance retirement system reforms in the United States? On November 2, the Retirement Security Project at Brookings hosted an event with senior Canadian officials and American experts to discuss the Canadian system and its relevance to American policy debates.. ...

After months of clamoring for pension changes, Democrats and Republicans have reached a stalemate.. Each side accuses the other of stalling until after the November election, when it will be easier for lame-duck lawmakers to vote on a proposal. Waiting until then provides fodder for Republicans to attack Democrats for inaction, while Democrats can avoid angering the public employee unions they rely on for campaign support.. Quinn, who is not on the November ballot, has called on lawmakers to set aside political considerations, saying the state no longer can afford rising pension costs that leave less money for other priorities. Illinois five employee retirement systems are underfunded by about $85 billion.. We cannot have public pensions drowning out, squeezing out, the money we need for public safety, the money we need for our schools and our children, the money we need for our health care, Quinn said.

Downloadable (with restrictions)! We analyze the retirement behaviour of older self-employed workers, using a life cycle framework and a multinomial logit model of dynamic employment and retirement choices. Using data from the two-wave Retirement Survey, we find that greater actual or potential earnings decrease the probability of retirement among the self-employed. In contrast to employees, none of gender, health or family circumstances appear to affect self-employed retirement decisions. The dynamic analysis reveals that relatively few employees and virtually no retirees switch into self-employment in later life. The switches that do occur are motivated less by attempts to use self-employment as a bridge job or stepping stone to full retirement, than by self-employment being a last resort for less affluent workers with job histories of weak attachment to the labour market. We compare self-employed and employee retirement behaviour and discuss the policy implications of our results.

Concerns over the adequacy of the current pension system have been growing in recent years. About two-thirds of Canadians are not covered by company pension plans. Surveys also suggest that about a third of Canadian families have no retirement savings at all and many others worry that theyre not saving enough.. Last week, an analysis by the C.D. Howe Institute said most Canadians underestimate the amount they need to save for retirement. Its study said people need to save between 10 and 21 per cent of their pre-tax income for 35 years to get a retirement income at age 65 that would provide 70 per cent of their pre-retirement income. While the Canada Pension Plan is actuarially sound for the next 75 years, the program is designed to replace just 25 per cent of the average working wage. It pays maximum retirement benefits of $934 a month.. Some, like the NDP, have suggested that the CPP system be beefed up to provide benefits that would approximate 50 per cent of the average working wage. That ...
The primary objective of the Universities Academic Pension Plan (UAPP) is to provide retirement income to participating members. The UAPP also provides benefits in the event of death, disability or termination of employment.. The UAPP is a contributory defined benefit pension plan; that is both you and the University make contributions into the Plan fund based upon your salary, and your pension at retirement is determined by a formula which uses your highest average salary and your years of credited service while you were a member of the plan. Your pension does not depend on the amount you contribute.. Further information about the plan can be found at the UAPP Website as well as the Member Handbook which provides a detailed description of the Plan benefits.. ...
Moshe A. Milevsky explains that with the decline of traditional defined beneft pensions, retirement income planning is more than just having the right mix of investments or saving enough in your 401(k) plan. A large sum of money in an investment plan—however you define large—doesnt guarantee you a secure retirement. The strategy you employ and the products you purchase with your nest egg will be more important than the size of that nest egg.
Retirement is based on the accumulation of wealth whether done by the individual or whether done by the corporation in the form of a pension fund. The traditional employee who has served the proper amount of time is eligible to be paid a certain amount as a pension for his remaining days, but does not own or control the wealth represented by the pension fund itself. This was brought home forcefully during the eighties when many a corporate raider seized control of a corporation only to extract billions of dollars from the pension fund and divert that money to his or her own personal use. This was challenged in court by the retirees who thought they had ownership rights to the money which had been put aside in their names and was supposed to generate their pensions, but the owners right to raid the pension funds was upheld! In any case, if a person accumulates his or her own wealth on which to base retirement income, then it is just a question of how long it takes to accumulate enough wealth to ...
Data and research on finance including financial markets, monetary issues, insurance, private pensions, sovereign debt, public debt management and financial education., Funded Pension arrangements, in particular defined contribution ones, are playing a growing role in complementing retirement income from public sources in OECD countries and worldwide. However, their design needs to be improved, according to a new OECD report.
The net effect of these proposals will be to erode the value of occupational pensions and unless the state pension is to be greatly enhanced, ensure a retirement income of penury for a great many pensioners ...

Last week, we published a white paper that focuses on income replacement ratios (IRRs), health care inflation rates, and strategies to bridge the savings gap caused by unplanned retirement health care costs.. Today, I will highlight some of the papers major points.. First, readers must understand that financial advisors use IRRs - a percentage of an individuals pre-retirement income - to project the amount of annual income a person will need to fund his/her retirement. The general rate for IRR calculations is usually between 75-85%, but over the past several years, 80% has evolved to become the favored industry standard.. Our current research indicates that because of rising health care costs, this calculation may be inherently flawed.. First, IRRs only factor a portion of medical expenditures into their retirement income projections. Private health insurance plans, such as HMOs and PPOs, require individuals to cover 25% of their insurance premiums, while employees subsidize the remaining 75%. ...

Recent changes to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Old Age Security (OAS) are giving Canadians the option to decide when to take the benefits from these programs, which could impact their retirement income and the tax they pay.. Beginning in 2012, anyone who paid into CPP and reached the age of 60 could choose to begin receiving CPP benefits regardless of employment status. Previously, in order to qualify for retirement benefits one had to cease employment.. Under the old rules, CPP benefits were reduced by 0.5% for every month that an individual collected benefits prior to 65 and were increased by the same amount for each month after 65 up to age 70.. This meant someone who began collecting at age 60 received 30 per cent less than they would have had they waited until age 65 and 30 per cent more if they waited until 70.. Under the new rules, this monthly penalty for taking the CPP early will increase gradually from 0.5 per cent in 2012 to 0.6 per cent a month by 2016 and the monthly benefit ...
To see if attitudes are changing about the potential for using ones home to cover living expenses in retirement, the Center for Retirement Research commissioned a survey that examined the house as a potential source of retirement income.

Good morning. My name is Helen Kirkpatrick. I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Washington Chapter of the American Association of Individual Investors, an organization serving 150,000 members. My remarks, however, are my own and do not represent the position of the Association.. Since we are here today to discuss bonds as an investment vehicle, I will begin by pointing out that the most recent national survey of AAII members reveals that their bond and bond fund allocations are at 21.8 %. This is the 10th time in eleven months that fixed income allocations have exceeded 20 %. The historic average is 15%.. Many bond investors appear to be most interested in muni bonds for retirement income. Many rely on high-quality broadly diversified municipal funds …funds that receive high ratings from Morningstar in particular. This is because most investors, including myself, have difficulty judging the safety of individual bonds --- never more so than now --- when bond insurers are leaving ...
