In this Live Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Group will provide the audience with an in-depth analysis of the fundamentals as well as recent developments in DOL’s Disability Claims Regulations.
Key topics include:
• New conflict of interest requirements
• New adverse benefit determinations obligations
