The following state regulations pages link to this page.
State regulations are updated quarterly; we currently have two versions available. Below is a comparison between our most recent version and the prior quarterly release. More comparison features will be added as we have more versions to compare.
(A) Multiple Employer Trust (MET) - An entity is herein referred to as a Multiple Employer Trust (MET) if that entity is providing insurance type benefits to employees of more than one employer, and that entity is not an insurance company authorized to do business in the state of Utah.
(B) Unauthorized Multiple Employer Trust - An entity purporting to be a Multiple Employer Trust (MET) is hereby defined as an Unauthorized Multiple Employer Trust if:
(1) The MET has not received an opinion letter from the United States Department of Labor recognizing the entity as a qualified trust under ERISA, or
(2) The benefits offered are not fully insured by an insurer licensed to do business in the State of Utah and no opinion letter recognizing the entity as a qualified ERISA plan has been issued from the U.S. Department of Labor.
(C) An unauthorized MET is defined to be an unauthorized insurer. Any claimed multiple employer trust which does not fulfill the requirements of a multiemployer plan as defined by ERISA, 29 U.S.C. 1001 et seq., as amended, is also defined to be an unauthorized MET and consequently an unauthorized insurer.
(D) All other definitions are the same as are provided in Chapter 1, Title 31A.
