A Greater Focus on Your Priorities
Because ERIC represents only large plan sponsors, ERIC members benefit by focusing solely on the interests that matter to them. That means a greater return on their time and investment. Members use ERIC as their outside resource to understand the potential implication of laws and regulations on their benefit plans. It also means that ERIC is a true peer community. All individuals at ERIC member organizations work for large employers.
Protecting Large Employer Benefits
Analysis --> Collaboration --> Advocacy
Each year, Congress introduces 5,000+ bills for consideration. Simultaneously, state and local lawmakers introduce new policies that may conflict with federal or other state rules. This constant whirlwind of legislative activity makes compliance unrealistic, if not impossible. As a result, millions of beneficiaries can be adversely affected.
ERIC tracks, analyzes, and distills these bills down to their core, presenting its membership with succinct calls to action, fighting for uniformity in state and local rules across the country, and flexibility to design benefits that suit the needs of a unique workforce.
ERIC's Expert Insight and Timely Updates (each year)
ERIC's membership is a "closed group". We protect the privacy of our member list and act as the megaphone for large employer plan sponsors. As a result, large employers are able to discuss policy issues in-depth among peers, while ERIC speaks to lawmakers and the media with one unified voice.
ERIC's Trusted Community and Tailored Support (each year)
New rules are often introduced without first determining the impact on those forced to comply. Added reporting, recordkeeping, notice requirements, and other costs can hinder an employer’s ability to provide health, retirement, and compensation benefits to employees. In addition, the media and others often portray only a limited scope of these proposals or fail to appreciate the role of the employer and the impact on them. ERIC advocates for its members to help shape final outcomes, while driving public perception of issues.
