What compliance services does COBRA Allies offer?

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act, known as ERISA, was designed to protect individuals enrolled in pension and health plans provided by their employers.  The law requires that plans meet basic minimum standards.  We are here to support you with Wrap plan documents and Summary Plan Descriptions (SPDs), form 5500s, as well as premium-only-plan (POP) documents and SPDs.  

About Cobra Allies

How you can rely on us as your Compliance Ally?

The importance of preparing plan summaries that comply with all ERISA requirements cannot be overstated.

Wrap Documents which meet ERISA plan documentation requirements have the additional benefit of enabling the employer to file a single Form 5500, rather than a form per plan, saving time and money. 

Let us ensure your plan documents meet all government requirements and related forms are filed timely and accurately.

Form 5500 for Employee Benefit Plans

is required by the IRS and DOL when you have 100 or more participants in your group health plan at the beginning of the plan year.  Form 5500 must be annually filed electronically.
