Tuesday, March 14, 2017
2:00 p.m. ET / 11:00 a.m. PT
A cafeteria plan is a written plan — maintained by an employer for employees — that must meet requirements of the Internal Revenue Code Section 125 regulations. A cafeteria plan provides participants with an opportunity to receive certain benefits on a pre-tax basis. To comply with Section 125, a cafeteria plan must satisfy structural requirements and a set of nondiscrimination rules. This webinar will help employers understand their responsibilities under the nondiscrimination rules.
This webinar will:
Review the basics of a cafeteria plan
Explain the key terms used in the nondiscrimination tests
Discuss the nondiscrimination tests
Discuss the safe harbors for cafeteria plans
Describe testing frequency
Discuss the consequences of failing nondiscrimination testing
Describe best practices in cafeteria plan design, testing, and taking corrective actions
This 60-minute intermediate level webinar will help employers understand cafeteria plan nondiscrimination rules.
The presentation will be posted on the UBA website the day before the webinar.
