Thinking through the Process of Forming an Employee Benefits Captive

Karin Landry, Managing Partner at Spring Consulting Group
April 08, 2020
A new Captive Thought Leader Video featuring Karin Landry, managing partner at Spring Consulting Group, titled "Employee Benefit Captives: The Process," has recently been added to the Captive.com video library.

Ms. Landry says when employers think about funding employee benefits in a captive, they need to think about whether or not the funding of those benefits would be subject to the US Department of Labor (DOL).

Many of the benefits that employers offer to employees, such as life and disability, welfare benefits, or retirement benefits, are subject to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) of 1974 and therefore subject to the DOL, Ms. Landry advises. Other benefits like voluntary benefits, multinational pooling, and medical stop loss are not typically subject to the DOL.
   

What does it mean to be subject to the Department of Labor? She explains that it means if you are an employer with a captive, and it is a single-parent captive, you may be subject to a prohibited transaction, which requires an organization to go through a DOL approval process.

There is no cost to view the videos, and you will find them in the Captive Thought Leader Videos section of Captive.com. More videos will be added in the future.
