Join us for a POST-ELECTION Washington update on how the outcome of the presidential and congressional races may affect benefits and compensation policy. Next year, regardless of which party controls the White House, Senate and House, the major issues will be deficit reduction and tax reform, including the various suggestions made by leaders of the Simpson-Bowles commission and other fiscal reform groups. And, as always, benefit and compensation issues will be in play – such as:


  • What will happen to Obamacare?
  • How might the tax treatment for employer-provided health and retirement coverage change?
  • Will the shift from defined benefit to defined contribution in the retirement and health care areas be reversed, stabilized or accelerated?
  • How might greater retirement security be extended to more Americans?
  • How might tax deduction and tax rate changes affect deferred and equity compensation?


Once the election results are in, we’ll be able to share with you what our experts see as the likely Washington scenarios on these and other benefit and compensations issues over the coming year.
