BenefitsPRO Publishes Article From Greg Ash On The Need For Retirement Plan Sponsors to Take Immediate Action Following CARES Act Passage

April 10, 2020

Spencer Fane attorney Greg Ash recently published an article with BenefitsPRO, a leading ALM publication on employee benefits and labor and employment law, on the CARES Act and its effect on retirement plans.

Some plan sponsors first received that notice from Fidelity on March 26, effectively giving them two business days to decide.”
