Course Description

The course examines employee benefits governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), such as pension and 401(k) plans. When does ERISA come into play? - Business planning - Employment agreements, termination of employment - Prenuptial agreements, divorce - Corporate and individual tax planning - Estate planning and probate - Bankruptcy - In every employer retirement, medical, life insurance, disability, or other benefit plan or agreement. This course provides you with a working knowledge of various retirement plans, as well as the legal requirements applicable to these plans. Sections of the International Revenue Code are examined, but as much for their underlying purpose (governmental, societal and employer goals), as for their content. This course also examines how ERISA applies to welfare benefit plans such as medical, life insurance, and disability plans, and related areas such as COBRA and HIPAA.
