SBA commemorates 20 years of serving large and mid-sized employers’ benefits consulting needs

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Independent, full-service employee benefits consulting firm Strategic Benefits Advisors, Inc. (SBA) announced the firm is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Since opening its doors in April 2002, SBA has helped organizations in every sector of the North American economy navigate their toughest employee benefits challenges while reducing plan expenses and improving efficiency, compliance and the participant experience.

SBA was founded by industry veterans Mindy Zatto and Andy Adams, whose big-firm experience as benefits consultants and plan administrators for some of the world's largest companies earned them a reputation for innovative thinking and exceptional service. Their work also revealed a market need for a new model of employee benefits consulting that could bridge the all-too-common gap between how benefits plans are designed and how they are administered. With this objective in mind, Zatto and Adams started SBA operating out of their homes.

"From day one, SBA set out to do things differently," said Adams. "Plan sponsors need an advocate in their corner - someone who will help close the gaps in their employee benefits. Having experience with both traditional benefits consulting issues and outsourced plan administration gave us a unique perspective on how to deliver the best and most cost-effective services possible. Twenty years in, it's a calling that still energizes us."

Over the last two decades, SBA has grown from its humble beginnings into an award-winning employer whose team of nearly 30 full-time consultants - including seven credentialed actuaries - is among the industry's most experienced. The firm's clients, which range in size from 1,000 to 300,000 employees and span publicly-traded, private and government organizations, turn to SBA to address complex plan issues with practical solutions and expert support.

In the early days, SBA focused on helping plan sponsors optimize their retirement and retiree health plans through plan design, actuarial services, plan de-risking and third-party administrator management. Today, the firm supports every category of employee benefits, from health and welfare to financial wellness and from rewards and recognition to tuition assistance. SBA's more than two dozen service lines now include defined contribution (DC) compliance; vendor search, implementation, management and recovery; plan governance; outsourced pension administration; specialty call center support; and much more.

"SBA's focus on doing right by our clients and our colleagues has rewarded us with the opportunity to create lifelong relationships, not just business partnerships," said Zatto. "This commitment has been our guidepost for 20 years and will continue to define our business for the next 20 years to come."

Plan sponsors should prepare for smooth sailing for ‘SECURE Act 2.0’ retirement reform bill

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Independent, full-service employee benefits consulting firm Strategic Benefits Advisors, Inc. (SBA) issued a statement today notifying plan sponsors of pending bipartisan legislation that could significantly impact employer-sponsored retirement plans. The House Ways and Means Committee unanimously passed the Securing a Strong Retirement Act of 2021 on Wednesday, May 5; now the bill moves on to the full House, where it enjoys considerable bipartisan support.

Designed to build on the SECURE Act - and, consequently, dubbed the 'SECURE Act 2.0' - the proposed retirement reform legislation seeks to enhance the long-term financial security of millions of Americans by providing wider access to retirement savings. While most provisions of the legislation would apply to plan years beginning after December 31, 2022, certain provisions would apply after December 31, 2021.

SBA Principal Andy Adams offered the following summary of SECURE Act 2.0 provisions that are likely to affect a majority of retirement plan sponsors. According to Adams, the bill:

* Requires plan sponsors to automatically enroll employees in 401(k) and 403(b) plans unless they specifically opt out

* Introduces several changes to required minimum distribution (RMD) rules:

- Raises the RMD age (the age at which participants must begin withdrawing from their retirement accounts) from 72 to 75 over 10 years

- Reduces the individual tax penalty for failure to take the RMD

- Provides more flexibility in the allowable timing, amounts and features of life annuities to satisfy RMD requirements

- Expands the amount that can be excluded from RMD rules if used to purchase qualified longevity annuity contracts

* Ties the IRA catch-up contribution limit, which allows those age 50 and older to make additional contributions beyond the standard limit, to inflation

* Creates new, higher catch-up contribution limits that apply at ages 62, 63 and 64 for those who participate in employer-sponsored retirement plans, including SIMPLE plans

* Allows individuals to pay down a student loan instead of contributing to a 401(k) plan and still receive an employer match in their retirement plan

* Allows employers to offer small, immediate financial incentives to employees to join retirement plans

* Requires plan sponsors to allow part-time employees who work at least 500 hours a year for 2 consecutive years (not 3 years, as under current law) to participate in company 401(k) plans

* Gives plan sponsors greater flexibility in correcting plan errors, for example:

- Allows more time to correct missed contributions to employees' retirement accounts without penalties

- Expands the scope of the Employee Plans Compliance Resolution System (EPCRS), which allows plan sponsors to self-report errors to the IRS and correct those errors without drastic penalties

* Limits the degree to which plans may seek to recoup excess retirement plans payments from participants

* Instructs the Department of Labor to issue new guidance for benchmarking of target date funds

* Limits the disclosures required to those not participating in plans

* Creates a central data repository for lost participants (the 'Retirement Savings Lost and Found')

* Requires plan sponsors to provide participants with at least one paper account statement per year

* Adjusts top-heavy rules for certain DC plans

* Gives employers latitude to rely on employee self-certification that hardship distribution requirements have been met

Certain additional provisions, Adams noted, apply only to public employer plans or to special classes of individuals such as military personnel, firefighters and first responders. Other provisions not summarized here are likely to affect only a small percentage of plans. Read the full text of H.R. 2954, the Securing a Strong Retirement Act of 2021, here.

"With strong, bipartisan support for this legislation among both House and Senate membership, the odds are good that the so-called 'SECURE Act 2.0' will enjoy a relatively smooth path toward final passage," said Adams. "Retirement plan sponsors should take this opportunity to familiarize themselves with the bill's provisions and put a strategy in place for implementing necessary plan changes by the end of next year."

Strategic Benefits Advisors launches ‘Lightning Benefits Survey’ series for plan sponsors

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Independent, full-service employee benefits consulting firm Strategic Benefits Advisors, Inc. (SBA) today announced the launch of a bi-monthly Lightning Benefits Survey series designed to help plan sponsors understand where their peers stand on a variety of timely employee benefits topics. Participation in the series - and access to survey results - is limited to plan sponsors.

According to founding principal Andy Adams, SBA will introduce a new survey topic every other month, with 2021 topics ranging from student loan debt assistance to plan audits to the use of artificial intelligence in HR. Plan sponsors may also nominate topics for consideration.

Plan sponsors' individual responses will remain confidential. However, by sharing the aggregated, anonymized findings of each survey with those who participate, SBA hopes to provide plan sponsors with meaningful insights to better inform business decisions regarding employee benefits.

"Our goal is to give plan sponsors a lot of value for not a lot of time spent," said Adams. "Unlike the 'marathon' surveys that are so prevalent in the employee benefits space, our Lightning Benefits Surveys take three minutes or less - yet they provide actionable intelligence and peer benchmarking on topics that matter to plan sponsors."

The series' first installment, a three-question survey on the prevalence of short-term loan programs for employees, launches today and will remain open through next week. For more information or to request access to the Lightning Benefits Survey series, visit SBA's website.

Strategic Benefits Advisors Urges 401(k) Plan Sponsors to Review Payroll Procedures Before Year’s End to Ensure SECURE Act Readiness

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Independent, full-service employee benefits consulting firm Strategic Benefits Advisors, Inc. (SBA) today issued guidance urging 401(k) plan sponsors to review their payroll systems and procedures in advance of January 1, 2021, to ensure compliance with the federal Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act.

The SECURE Act includes a mandatory requirement for plan sponsors to allow long-term, part-time employees to participate in 401(k) plans alongside full-time employees. Starting January 1, 2021, plan sponsors must begin counting hours for part-time employees who work at least 500 hours a year. Employees who work 500 hours for three consecutive years must be offered the opportunity to participate in their organization's 401(k) plan beginning in 2024.

"Plan sponsors who don't move fast will be hard-pressed to make necessary changes in just 60 days," said SBA Founding Principal Andy Adams. "Changes involving payroll providers and HRIS systems are notoriously time-consuming, so a sense of urgency is called for to ensure effective processes for counting hours are in place by January 1."

Historically, many retirement plan sponsors have only tracked hours for part-time employees who work 1,000 or more hours per year. Others have simplified timekeeping by crediting part-time employees a fixed number of hours for each day or pay period worked. Regardless of their approach for tracking hours or using equivalencies, plan sponsors will need to coordinate with their recordkeepers, payroll providers and HR information system (HRIS) providers to make a plan for crediting part-time employees who work 500 hours or more.

Counting hours for part-time employees is not always straightforward. To relieve themselves of the administrative burden of counting hours, some plan sponsors may decide to extend eligibility to all part-time employees, regardless of hours worked.

"The calculus behind the decision to extend eligibility to every part-time employee will vary greatly from one plan sponsor to the next depending on the size and nature of its workforce and its available resources," said Adams. "Plan sponsors will also need to decide whether newly eligible part-time employees should be allowed to share in employer contributions, as the SECURE Act leaves this decision entirely in employers' hands."

SBA recommends plan sponsors seek expert advice on how best to determine part-time employees' hours. The SECURE Act represents the most significant changes to employer-sponsored retirement plans in over a decade. SBA published a summary of the law's provisions in April 2019.

New SBA Service Fills Plan Sponsors’ Need for Pandemic-Friendly, Cost-Effective Sourcing of Third-Party Benefit Service Providers

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Independent, full-service employee benefits consulting firm Strategic Benefits Advisors, Inc. (SBA) today announced the launch of Arm's-Length Vendor Search, a service designed to help organizations make informed decisions about hiring and retaining benefit plan administrators, recordkeepers and other third-party service providers when travel restrictions or budgetary constraints preclude in-person assessment of prospective vendors.

Procurement policies require many plan sponsors to issue requests for proposal (RFPs) on a regular schedule or as contracts with existing service providers expire. For others, vendor searches represent a valuable opportunity to resolve benefit administration challenges and negotiate more favorable pricing for outsourced services.

"Plan sponsors don't want to put search projects on hold, but they're unsure how to proceed in the current climate," said SBA Founding Principal Andy Adams. "We are pleased to provide an elegant, cost-effective solution to this market need. We call it Arm's-Length Vendor Search not only because it can be done remotely, but also because it eliminates conflicts of interest that occur when searches are performed by parties that earn referral commissions or have an interest in bidding for the same services they are evaluating. These remote searches can achieve everything a traditional search provides, enabling plan sponsors to select vendors with confidence."

SBA performs vendor searches for a wide range of outsourced employee benefit services, including defined benefit (DB) plan administration, 401(k) plan recordkeeping, health and welfare plan administration, financial wellness services, actuarial services and investment advisors. According to Adams, Arm's-Length Vendor Search engagements start as low as $25,000 depending on the nature and scope of the plan sponsor's request.

SBA Publishes Guidance on Which CARES Act Provisions Require Immediate Action by Health and Retirement Plan Sponsors

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Independent, full-service employee benefits consulting firm Strategic Benefits Advisors (SBA) issued a statement today summarizing provisions of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that require action on the part of health and retirement plan sponsors.

"The CARES Act calls upon plan sponsors to act swiftly in adopting measures that will ease the financial burden of COVID-19 on individuals," said SBA Founding Principal Mindy Zatto. "Plan sponsors should coordinate with their healthcare providers immediately so they may begin complying with the law's mandatory provisions. While most retirement plan provisions are optional, they are nonetheless time-sensitive and call for coordination with the plan sponsor's recordkeeper and actuary. Any necessary plan amendments won't be required until the end of the 2022 plan year."

Required Health Plan Provisions

Health plan sponsors must comply with the following provisions expanding access to healthcare for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients:
* Coverage of COVID-19 Testing
Plans must cover the cost of approved COVID-19 tests and their administration. Test providers should be reimbursed at a previously negotiated rate, if applicable. In the absence of a previously negotiated rate, plan sponsors may reimburse providers an amount equal to the publicly listed cash price of the service or negotiate a lesser reimbursement.

* Coverage of COVID-19 Preventive Services
Plans must also cover, without participant cost-sharing, qualified coronavirus preventive services and vaccines recommended by the United States Preventive Services Task Force or Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Required Defined Contribution (DC) Plan Provisions

DC plan participants who are due a required minimum distribution for 2020 may elect to not take the distribution without incurring any penalties.

Optional Defined Contribution (DC) Plan Provisions

DC plan sponsors may choose to extend the following benefits to plan participants who self-certify that (a) they have been diagnosed with COVID-19; (b) their spouse or dependent has been diagnosed with COVID-19; or (c) they have experienced certain other adverse financial consequences of COVID-19 as specified by the Secretary of the Treasury:

* Coronavirus-Related Distribution
Plans may allow a maximum $100,000 "coronavirus-related distribution" that must be taken by December 31, 2020. Early withdrawal penalties do not apply, and distributions are not eligible for rollover. However, a recipient of a coronavirus-related distribution has the right to pay the distribution back within three years, in which case it will be treated as a rollover contribution. The taxable amount of a coronavirus-related distribution can be spread pro-rata over three tax years.

* Increased Loan Limits
Qualified plans may increase loan limits from $50,000 to $100,000 and from 50% of the vested balance to 100% of the vested balance for loans made between March 27 and September 23, 2020.

* Delayed Loan Repayment
Plans may delay due dates for one year for individuals with outstanding loans whose repayment would normally be due between March 27 and December 31, 2020, allowing an extension beyond the normal five-year cap.

Optional Defined Benefit (DB) Plan Provisions

* Option to Defer Single-Employer Plan Funding
Plan sponsors may delay payment of any minimum required contributions that would ordinarily have been due during calendar year 2020 to January 1, 2021. The amount of each delayed contribution must be increased to reflect the interest accrued between the original due date and the actual payment date.

* Benefit Restriction Relief
For purposes of applying benefit restrictions under Code Section 436, plan sponsors may elect to use the prior plan year's adjusted funding target attainment percentage as the adjusted funding target attainment percentage for plans years that include calendar year 2020. This may allow some plans to avoid triggering certain benefit restrictions in 2020 that would have otherwise applied.

The full text of the CARES Act can be found here. To speak with Strategic Benefits Advisors' experienced team of benefits consultants about the potential impact of this law on your plans, call 770-551-8989.
