June 26, 2024

By: Devin M. Karas

In this week’s Business in 2024 webinar, Bond employee benefits attorney Devin M. Karas provided updates on several benefits-related topics, including what employers should do in the face of conflicting claims for benefits under an Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) plan. For example, a deceased individual’s surviving spouse and children all think they’re entitled to the plan participant’s death benefit.

The full webinar covered the following topics:

  • Primary Day in NYS
  • Developments in Title VI Enforcement
  • Important Reminders: Competing Beneficiary Claims and 5500 Remittance Reporting and Correction
  • Third Department’s recent decision in Cuomo v. New York State Commission on Ethics and Lobbying in Government
  • Introduction of the Proposed Federal American Privacy Rights Act
