New York, NY, May 26, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The Knowledge Group/The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts, announced today that it has scheduled a live webcast entitled: New ERISA Disability Claim Procedures: For Your Strict Compliance Live Webcast. This two-hour event is scheduled on June 26, 2017 at 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM ET.
In the latter part of 2016, the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) published and released a final rule altering the ERISA disability claims procedure. The new rule applies to all ERISA-governed disability benefits claims filed on or after January 1, 2018. The final rule is designed to increase fairness and transparency and is aimed to cut down the number of lawsuit filings.
With the new alterations brought by the new rule, it is expected that new challenges and risks may arise. To avoid potential losses and unwanted costs, employers should ensure that their claim administrators and providers are updated with the latest trends and developments surrounding ERISA Disability Claim Procedures.
In this live Webcast, a seasoned panel of thought leaders and professionals brought together by The Knowledge Group will help the audience understand all the important issues and key aspects in the New ERISA Disability Claim Procedures. Speakers will also present recent trends and developments and will underscore best compliance practices.
