DOL Adopts 90-Day Delay for Disability Regulations

in Disability Plans

New disability claims procedures were scheduled to go into effect on January 1, 2018.  In a notice to be published in the Federal Register on October 12th, the DOL will provide for a 90-day delay to examine the burdens of the new regulation.  That means the new applicability date of the disability final regulations would be April 1, 2018, unless the DOL chooses to further delay or revise the regulation.
