Partner Eileen Brassil and Senior Manager Eric Wallin attended the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans (IFEBP) Accounting and Auditing Institute for Employee Benefit Plans in Las Vegas from June 23-25.
The Institute provided up-to-date information on plan disclosure requirements and addressed current issues that impact pension and health and welfare plan audits, allowing for lively peer interaction and discussion.
Ian Dingwall, the Chief Accountant of the Department of Labor’s Employee Benefits Security Administration, spoke at the Conference and gave an update on topics of particular interest this year, including withdrawal liability issues, hot buttons for defined contribution plans, data mining, advanced Form 5500 preparation, and unrelated business income.

Back in the Legacy offices, our partners return from conferences and share what they learned with all of our Firm’s employees at in-house employee benefit plan seminars.

This allows us to provide best practices advice and guidance to our benefit plan clients and to assist them with issues and challenges affecting their operations and reporting requirements. Please let us know if you would like any additional information or if you have questions about any of the topics mentioned above.
