Employee Benefits


The Institute and the Department of Labor’s Employee Benefit Security Administration (EBSA) are conducting seminars with state CPA societies for small business clients on how to establish and administer pension, health and other employee benefit plans. Ian MacKay, director of the AICPA Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center ( http://ebpaqc.aicpa.org ), said, “Since most companies don’t offer pensions, it’s essential to educate them on how to set up benefit plans and help their employees participate in them. As trusted business advisers, CPAs are ideally qualified to guide businesses in such efforts.” For information, e-mail educationcampaignseminars@dol.gov .
