Nothing is Certain Except Death and Taxes,

but Stranger Things Have Occurred

Join Us at Andrei's

Thursday, October 20, 2022

8:00 am to 9:45 am

Our Presentation:

As Halloween approaches, our thoughts turn to ghosts and ghouls and the always frightening topic of what happens to plan benefits when someone dies.  We will cover all manner of spooky death related topics: beneficiary designations (or the lack of same); processing death distributions; disputes among potential death beneficiaries, benefit disclaimers, required minimum distributions (including the current proposed regulations); death related provisions in plan documents; and of critical importance – will there be another Journey cover in the final season of Stranger Things?

Our Speaker:

Sherrie Boutwell

For over thirty years, Sherrie has focused her entire law practice and ongoing education on finding solutions in this ever-changing and complex area of today’s employee benefit challenges. She enjoys unraveling the mysteries of ERISA with her clients with a clear focus on truly understanding each client’s issues while carefully and clearly defining the best options for each situation. 

Sherrie has represented clients before the Internal Revenue Service, the United States Department of Labor, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, arbitrators from the American Arbitration Association and the United States District Court, with respect to employee benefits issues.

With an emphasis on retirement and deferred compensation plans, Sherrie advises and counsels a broad range of clients including employers, employees, plan fiduciaries, financial institutions, government agencies and trade associations, on a wide array of employee benefits matters.

Sherrie has extensive experience and is a highly sought-after speaker, writer, and advisor on employee benefits topics.
