Oops, We Made a Mistake! | 10:30–11:45 am

Presenter: Brian Hector

You’ve found a mistake in your plan document, plan administration, or an action taken by an ERISA fiduciary. What voluntary correction programs do the IRS and DOL provide to make corrections? Why and when should you use them? What are EPCRS, VCP, SCP, Audit CAP, VFCP, DFVCP, and EPVCA? What do they cover; and what don’t they cover? Any new developments?

Presenter: Deborah Davidson

This session will present an overview of insurance policies available for ESOP and corporate fiduciaries. Topics addressed will include: types of coverage, amounts of coverage, deductibles and retentions, policy terms to look for, and how one type of insurance coverage can affect another. Indemnification of ESOP and corporate fiduciaries also will be discussed.
