The difference between a competent employee benefits lawyer and an expert often is nothing more than knowing where to look for answers. This panel of experts will reveal where they look – not just the statute and regulations but legislative materials, preambles, Q&A compilations, FAQs, web sites, blogs and other secondary sources. They’ll also give an insider’s perspective on how guidance gets generated and how to determine which resources are most reliable. Areas covered will include: IRS/tax issues and resources; DOL/Title I issues and resources § PBGC/Title IV issues and resources; Legislative issues and resources; SEC/securities law issues and resources; Health plan issues and resources.
