Kutak Rock attorney Michelle Ueding published the article "Understanding the Lawsuits Targeting University Retirement Plans" in the Winter 2017 edition of Journal of Pension Benefits: Issues in Administration (Vol. 24 Issue 2).
In the article Ueding examines the recent lawsuits, filed primarily by the law firm of Schlichter Bogard & Denton, against 12 universities regarding their ERISA retirement plans. Ueding explains that understanding these suits and reacting appropriately is critical for fiduciaries and boards of institutions that sponsor retirement plans, particularly 403(b) plans.
Ueding's work at Kutak Rock focuses on qualified plans, deferred compensation plans and ERISA issues relating to these arrangements. She assists clients with plan design, due diligence, fiduciary duties, administration, investment review, disclosure requirements, drafting plan policies and administrative procedures.
