Louisiana Proclamation Number 33 JBE 2020 "Stay at Home" Order
Under Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards Proclamation Number 33 JBE 2020, The Pangburn Group is allowed to remain open as a CISA "essential" business. Nonetheless, we have closed our facilities to the public and have identified/designated a limited number of "essential workers" that need to continue to be onsite either part or full-time to effectively perform their job duties. Although not required to comply with Section 5 of the Order we are voluntarily complying with its provisions. Generally, we expect 10% or less of our workforce to be onsite for the duration of the "Stay at Home" order. We do not anticipate any material business interruption as a result of the shift to remote work.

Pangburn Response to COVID-19
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pangburn has activated applicable measures under our Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plan (BCDRP). We have monitored the spread of the novel coronavirus for several months and began BCDRP-related staff communications on February 27th. We are following CDC, state, and local guidelines and strongly encouraging "social distancing" to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and reduce impact on area medical facilities. Pangburn maintains a secure telecommuting/telework capacity that can be deployed company-wide when needed. While our main office remains open, we are strongly encouraging staff to work remotely when possible. We anticipate most staff will telecommute full or part-time for at least the next several weeks. At this time we do not anticipate any material business interruption as a result of the pandemic.

IRC 6050Y Information Reporting Requirements for Reportable Policy Sales
IRC Section 6050Y was added by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act and requires that certain information be reported (a) when a reportable policy sale (RPS) occurs, (b) when death benefits are paid from a policy that was a RPS, and (c) when there is a transfer of a policy to a foreign person. Items (b) and (c) apply to life insurance carriers (referred to as “Issuers”), while item (a) applies to any direct or indirect acquirer of a policy that was a RPS.

The new reporting requirements apply only to a RPS or to a death benefit payable from a policy that was a RPS that occurs after 12/31/2018.

The Pangburn Group has published an article providing more detail about the the RPS reporting requirements. The article is available here.

Transfer for Value Rule Impact on Employer Owned Life Insurance following an Acquisition
If your organization or your client’s organization was involved in an acquisition on or after 01/01/2018, contact your professional advisors to determine if any Employer Owned Life Insurance policies may be subject to the modified Transfer for Value rules (Section 101(a)(3)), and if so, what action(s) should be taken.

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) of 2017 modified the Transfer for Value rules as they pertain to Employer Owned Life Insurance (e.g., COLI, BOLI, CUOLI). In short, these modifications could result in some portion of future death proceeds being subject to tax for certain insurance policies on former employees of any entities (i.e., businesses) acquired after 12/31/2017.

It is widely believed that it was not the intent of Congress to impact these policies at all, but, to-date, there has not been legislation to fix the issue, and we still await draft guidance from the Treasury.

The Pangburn Group has published an article providing more detail about the Transfer for Value rules, as-written, and their impact on life insurance held on former employees of acquired businesses. The article is available here.

DOL Announces Applicability Date for Disability Benefit Claims Procedures
On January 5, 2018, the U.S. Department of Labor announced that it has set April 1, 2018, as the applicability date for employee benefit plans to comply with the final rule regarding claims made for disability benefits. In November 2017, the Department delayed the applicability date by 90 days (from 1/1/18 through 4/1/18), to provide an opportunity for stakeholders to submit data and information on the costs and benefits of the final rule. The submitted comments did not establish that the final rule imposes unnecessary regulatory burdens or significantly impairs workers’ access to disability insurance benefits; therefore, the final rule will go into effect without revision.

Pangburn Celebrates 20 Years in Business; Releases a new Public Website
On May 29th, 1996, in response to the demand for fee-based plan administrative services in the nonqualified executive benefit marketplace, Wayne and Brian Pangburn co-founded “The Pangburn Company, Inc.” Originally located in a small basement along the banks of False River in New Roads Louisiana, Pangburn began with a total staff of three including Wayne, Brian, and their secretary to recordkeep a handful of small nonqualified benefit and split dollar plans. Twenty years later, just a mile-and-a-half down the road from the basement where they started, Pangburn has a staff of approximately 50, serving over 2,000 clients across the country.

To commemorate our anniversary, Pangburn is pleased to launch our new public website at www.pangburngroup.com. The new site was designed using the latest web standards, and provides a significant visual refresh along with better organized content. It has been designed to dynamically adapt to a wide variety of browsers and devices including mobile phones and tablets. We look forward to extending this new design to our secure client/producer and participant websites later this year.

AALU Releases Washington Report Newswire on Pending Mandatory Requirement of Electronic DOL Filing for Top Hat Plans
AALU has released WRN#14.11.03, which states in part, "On September 30, 2014, the Employee Benefits Security Administration opened a web-based filing system for the required statements for “top hat” plans (i.e., “unfunded” plans established for a “select group of management or highly compensated employees”).

On the same day, rules were proposed that would make electronic filing of these statements mandatory; currently, filing them electronically is optional. Under the proposed rules, electronic filing would become mandatory 120 days after the final rule is published in the Federal Register."

DOL Proposes Rule for Electronic Filing of Top Hat Plan Statement
DOL Proposes Rule for Electronic Filing of Top Hat Plan Statement The Department has determined that regular mail or personal delivery are no longer the most efficient or cost-effective ways to file and process these notices and statements. The Department annually receives approximately 2,000 top hat plan statement filings. To make the information on these notices and statements accessible, the Department converts each paper filing to electronic format. The proposal will eliminate the need for this time-consuming task. Because the internet is widely accessible to persons who file these notices and statements, the Department expects that the regulated community will find electronic filing to be easier and more cost-effective than paper filing. Electronic filing should also facilitate the disclosure of the information to participants and beneficiaries, and other interested members of the public since electronically filed documents can be promptly posted on the Department's Web site. Thus, the Department, filers, and users all stand to benefit from this proposal in ways that are consistent with the goals of the E-Government Act of 2002. The Department is encouraging all filers to file electronically but it is not required at this time. See the proposed rule here.

SwingSet 2.0.0 Released
After six years we are pleased to announce the long overdue release of SwingSet 2.0.0. The project has seen a lot of activity, and many new features have been added to enable developers to have more control over the SwingSet components and various events. The SSDBComboBox now allows for filtering of items, making it easier to find the right item. SSDataGridHandler has been added to handle different events on the data grid. This is similar to the SSDBNav, which handles the events for SSDataNavigator. The example code and project demo have been updated to use the H2 database (in memory). Previously the examples and demo required a connection to a remote database and users were not able to make changes. With the use of H2, users can add/delete/update records from within the demo. Note that changes made in the demo application will be lost when it is closed.

For more information, please visit the project site: http://swingset.sourceforge.net. The project demo is available here:
