On Thursday, August 17, 2006, the Seyfarth Shaw Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation practice group will host a one and a half hour teleconference, in which our senior attorneys will provide an overview and answer your questions about the new Act. Among the topics to be covered will be:
- New protections for automatic enrollment plans and default investment elections
- Faster vesting and more disclosures for defined contribution plans
- The new requirements for cash balance and pension equity plans (including the recent decision in the IBM cash balance case)
- Minimum funding and other new defined benefit rules
This program will first address changes in defined contribution plans, with an opportunity for questions. We will then address issues related to those companies who do not sponsor defined benefit plans.
Time: 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. CST
