Webinar

Overview

Who Should Watch

This is a LIMRA member benefit webinar. Registration is open to home/corporate office employees of LIMRA member companies. Membership will be verified upon registration. 

Highlights

Easing access to multiple employer plans is the subject of much recent legislative and regulatory attention. This webinar explores what defined contribution (DC) plan sponsors think of MEPs, including their potential willingness to participate in one. These insights will prove valuable to providers who are considering offering MEPs, and those who may need to “protect” existing DC plans in the event that MEPs become a viable option for their clients. Attend this webinar to learn about:

  • Plan sponsor awareness and understanding of MEPs
  • Their interest in MEPs
  • Connecting MEPs with plan objectives
  • The appeal of MEPs
  • Product cautions
