Albert Feuer has a new ERISA article out that may interest many of our employee benefit law-inclinced readers: Determining the Death Beneficiary Under an ERISA Plan and the Rights of Such a Beneficiary, 54 Tax Mgmt Memo. 323 (August 26, 2013).
According to Albert, the article seeks to provide advice to (1) ERISA plan administrators, who often struggle to determine who they should pay survivor benefits, and to (2) trusts and estates attorneys and family law attorneys, who often struggle to determine who, if anyone, may use state law to wrest benefits from the person entitled to receive survivor benefits from an ERISA plan.
A great addition indeed to this underdeveloped area of ERISA Law!
