Managing Challenges for Non-Qualified Plans Related to Coronavirus 

Apr 07, 2020

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) is causing employers to take unprecedented actions and make difficult decisions as employers, particularly when it comes to a company's non-qualified plan.  Additionally, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act does not provide specific guidelines for employers and non-qualified plan participants like it does for qualified retirement plans.

These challenges were the focus of our webinar on April 6, 2020 for non-qualified plan sponsors and advisors. Our thought leaders provided insight on the unique situations that the coronavirus pandemic has caused as it relates to non-qualified plans.
