On July 9, 2021, the PBGC issued its interim final rule on ARPA’s Special Financial Assistance (“SFA”) Program for financially troubled multiemployer pension plans. The new regulations provide guidance on the application process for Special Financial Assistance and the related restrictions and requirements, including the priority in which applications will be reviewed. The guidance also sets forth special rules regarding employer withdrawals and withdrawal liability settlements for plans receiving Special Financial Assistance.
In this webinar, Seyfarth attorneys review the interim final rule, address what it means for multiemployer plans, and discuss what it means for employers participating in those plans.
Topics will include:
- Plan eligibility;
- The amount of SFA;
- The application process;
- Conditions and restrictions on receipt of SFA, including limitations on reductions in contributions and increases in benefits, and investment restrictions;
- Withdrawal liability considerations; and
- What’s Next
