Section of Real Property, Trust and Estate Law:
Plan Transactions and Terminations Committee

Mission

This committee deals with events and actions that are major structural changes in retirement and employee benefit plans. Special emphasis is given to employee benefit programs in corporate acquisitions and dispositions, plan terminations and plan mergers or spin-offs. The committee develops and submits comments on legislative proposals, regulations and rulings that are in the committee's area of responsibility. The committee also publishes information for Section members on these topics, and participates in or sponsors Section CLE programs.

More About Us

For 2011-2012, our committee will be involved in a range of activities relating to plan transactions and terminations. Our committee will again take a leading role in the JCEB Q&A Session with the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation. We also plan to increase our involvement with the PBGC regarding regulatory and enforcement issues. We regularly coordinate with the Defined Benefit Subcommittee and Merger and Acquisitions Subcommittee of the Employee Benefits Committee of the Tax Section, both for meetings and projects.
