Fourth Application for MPRA Benefit Suspensions Filed

On March 31, 2016, the Department of the Treasury (Treasury) issued a Notice and Request for Comments on a fourth application for benefit suspensions under the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014 (MPRA). This appears to be the first suspension application where a related application for partition under Section 4233 of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (as amended by MPRA) has also been submitted to the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
