PBGC Reportable Events: What You Need To Know About The New Rules
|Date / Time:
Pension plans and the companies who sponsor them are required to give the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) notice of Reportable Events - events and transactions affecting either the company or the plan that may signal financial problems and potentially put pensions at risk.
Employers need to know when a reportable event occurs and when to file with the PBGC. Failing to recognize and timely file a notice of reportable event can subject a company to penalties of up to $1,100 per day of delay.
This webinar explains the new reportable event definitions under the PBGC regulations that went into effect January 1, 2016. Learn the expanded waiver provisions that employers need to know, deadlines for post event notices and advance notices, and new PBGC forms for reportable events.
Learn what the employer needs to know to comply with the new reportable event rules and avoid PBGC problems, what actions the PBGC is likely to take after a reportable event filing, and how to negotiate with PBGC in the event of threatened PBGC action. This is vital information for any employer with a defined benefit pension plan.

Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
