Ex Parte Cease and Desist and Summary Seizure Orders-Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangements
Document Number: 2011-30921
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-12-06
Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor
This document contains two proposed rules under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) to facilitate implementation of new enforcement authority provided to the Secretary of Labor by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act). The Affordable Care Act authorizes the Secretary to issue a cease and desist order, ex parte (i.e. without prior notice or hearing), when it appears that the alleged conduct of a multiple employer welfare arrangement (MEWA) is fraudulent, creates an immediate danger to the public safety or welfare, or is causing or can be reasonably expected to cause significant, imminent, and irreparable public injury. The Secretary may also issue a summary seizure order when it appears that a MEWA is in a financially hazardous condition. The first proposed regulation establishes the procedures for the Secretary to issue ex parte cease and desist orders and summary seizure orders with respect to fraudulent or insolvent MEWAs. The second proposed regulation establishes the procedures for use by administrative law judges (ALJs) and the Secretary when a MEWA or other person challenges a temporary cease and desist order.
Proposed Revision of the Form M-1
Document Number: 2011-30920
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-12-06
Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor
This document announces proposed revisions to the Form M-1, Report for Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangements (MEWAs) and Certain Entities Claiming Exception (ECEs). The revisions can be viewed on the Employee Benefits Security Administration's (EBSA) Web site at www.dol.gov/ebsa. The proposed form is substantively different from previous versions of the Form M-1 and may not be used for filing purposes. Elsewhere in this edition of the Federal Register, EBSA is publishing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. Those rules would amend the existing MEWA regulations to implement the registration requirement added to section 101(g) of Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, (ERISA), as amended by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act) as well as to enhance compliance, enforcement, and protection of employer-sponsored health benefits. The proposed form and the accompanying instructions would facilitate the filing requirements for MEWAs under ERISA.
Proposed Revision of Annual Information Return/Reports
Document Number: 2011-30919
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-12-06
Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor

Filings Required of Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangements and Certain Other Related Entities
Document Number: 2011-30918
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2011-12-06
Agency: Employee Benefits Security Administration, Department of Labor
This document contains a proposed rule under title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) that, upon adoption, would implement reporting requirements for multiple employer welfare arrangements (MEWAs) and certain other entities that offer or provide health benefits for employees of two or more employers. The proposal amends existing reporting rules to incorporate new provisions enacted as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (Affordable Care Act) to more clearly address the reporting obligations of MEWAs that are ERISA plans. This regulation is designed to impose the minimal amount of burden on legally compliant MEWAs and entities claiming exception (ECEs) while implementing the Secretary's authority to take enforcement action against fraudulent or abusive MEWAs included in the Affordable Care Act and working to protect health benefits for businesses and their employees. This proposed rule implements the new provisions while preserving the filing structure and provisions of the 2003 regulations which direct plan MEWAs and non-plan MEWAs to report annually and file upon registration or origination. Elsewhere in this edition of the Federal Register, the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA) is publishing a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking related to the Secretary's new enforcement authority with respect to MEWAs and Notices of proposed revisions of the Form M-1 and the Form 5500.

Notice for Delay of Payment of Title XII Interest for Three States
Document Number: 2011-30966
Type: Notice
Date: 2011-12-02
Agency: Employment and Training Administration, Department of Labor
This notice announces the approval for delay of Title XII interest payment for three states. Section 1202(b)(3)(B) of the Social Security Act permits a state to delay payment of interest accrued on Title XII advances made during the last five months of the Federal fiscal year (FY) (May, June, July, August, and September) to no later than December 31 of the next succeeding calendar year. Interest on the delayed payment will accrue from the normal due date (i.e., September 30) and in the same manner as if the interest due on the advance(s) was an advance made on such due date. During fiscal year 2011, the States of Colorado and New Jersey had requested delay of payment for interest accrued on advances taken during the last five months of FY 2011. Delay of interest payment for these States was granted until December 31, 2012, however New Jersey opted to repay their entire accrued interest liability on September 30, 2011. Section 1202(b)(9) of the Social Security Act permits a state to delay for a period not to exceed nine months the Title XII interest payment due prior to October 1 if, for the most recent 12- month period prior to such October 1 for which data are available, the state had an average total unemployment rate of 13.5 percent or greater. An interest payment delayed under paragraph (9) must be paid in full not later than the last official Federal business day prior to the following July 1, allowing that at the state's option payment of delayed interest may be accelerated. No interest shall accrue on such delayed payment. The State of Nevada had requested delay of payment for accrued interest based on these high unemployment provisions, and such delay was granted until June 30, 2012.
