    Treasury Releases Proposed Regulations Clarifying UPS Rule under MPRA - National Law Review

    On February 9, the US Department of the Treasury (Treasury) released additional proposed regulations implementing the benefit suspension provisions of the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014 (MPRA).

    The proposed regulations address MPRA’s rule for multiemployer plans in “critical and declining” status that includes benefits attributable to a participant’s service with any employer that has (1) withdrawn from the plan in a complete withdrawal, (2) paid its full withdrawal liability, and (3) assumed liability, pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement, for providing benefits to participants and beneficiaries that is equal to any benefits for such participants and beneficiaries reduced as a result of the financial status of the plan.
