BOSTON, March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Benefit Plans--a Boston based, full-service employee benefit brokerage and consulting firm announced today that they will offer of a comprehensive suite of COBRA services to new clients at no charge. Through their affiliate organization, Leggette Actuaries, Universal Benefit Plans will remove the burden of COBRA notification, tracking and billing responsibilities for their clients and provide full client support.
"The Federal Government doesn't care how businesses communicate and administer employee benefits to active employees, but they do care how they communicate and administer them for inactive employees," says Edan Barshan, President of Universal Benefit Plans. "COBRA is one of the most complex Federal laws that impacts employee benefits. There are deadlines to meet, notices to send, grace periods to accept and penalties to pay for those who fail to do any of the above. The bottom line is that COBRA is an employee benefits issue, and we take care of all of our clients' benefits needs."
COBRA administration--especially with the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) regulatory changes--is not only a challenging and confusing responsibility, but also a frustrating task that contributes nothing to the bottom line. With Leggette Actuaries, Universal Benefit Plans offers an effective and complimentary COBRA administration solution that clients can count on for both time and cost savings, as well as compliance.
In addition to this, Universal Benefit Plans is taking the lead in educating employers on legislative changes regarding ARRA and COBRA. The company will offer a complimentary web seminar April 3, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time.
