• New developments in retirement plans with regards to changes under the SECURE Act and the CARES Act,
• Recent developments in welfare benefit plans with regards to IRS guidance and CARES Act changes, and
• A compliance checklist for 2021, including required amendments, ACA information reporting, and topics for discussion with service providers.
