Complete Pension Coverage With U.S. Master Pension Guide, Pension Code And Regulations From CCH

(RIVERWOODS, ILL., March 7, 2000) – CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of human resources, pension and tax law information, has announced the publication of the CCH 2000 U.S. Master Pension Guide, a convenient handbook explaining the subjects that those who establish and administer defined benefit and defined contribution plans deal with daily. And, to help pension and benefits professionals stay current with the letter of the law, CCH also publishes the current text of the IRS and Erisa code and regulations in the Pension and Employee Benefits - Code - ERISA - Regulations – either with or without the preambles to final and temporary regulations. (To order, call 1-800-248-3238 or visit for more information.)

The popular CCH U.S. Master Pension Guide covers a comprehensive range of pension issues with clear, step-by-step explanations that lay out the basic principles and rules governing each subject. The new 2000 edition of this standard desktop reference includes information on the IRS Restructuring Act of 1998 affecting IRAs.

Pension and pension planning issues covered in the Guide include: plan qualification, limits on benefits and contributions, vesting and accrual, nondiscrimination rules, funding and actuarial requirements, required distributions, taxation of distributions, loans, withholding reporting requirements, prohibited transactions and ERISA rights, claims and enforcement.

Examples and pointers are used throughout to illustrate how the rules are applied. Accountants, attorneys, actuaries, human resources personnel and pension specialists in banks, consulting firms and insurance companies will find the Guide to be a ready and reliable resource for answering hundreds of day-to-day questions.

The Guide also contains a complete calendar of filing due dates for the extensive range of reports required for qualified plans and a removable Quick Facts card that provides instant access to key numbers relating to Social Security, cost-of-living adjustments, excise taxes and penalties.

As an aid to in-depth research, the discussions in the 2000 U.S. Master Pension Guide are annotated with citations to the Internal Revenue Code, ERISA, rulings and regulations, case law and the CCH Pension Plan Guide.

Code, Regulations Provide Letter of the Law

For pension and welfare benefits practitioners who need up-to-date copies of the letter of the law in their field, CCH is also offering compilations of the IRS and ERISA code and regulations that govern pension and welfare benefit plans.

Pension and Employee Benefits - Code - ERISA - Regulations - Preambles is a three-volume set that provides pension and employee benefits practitioners with an authoritative and comprehensive reference to pension provisions and selected welfare benefit provisions of the Internal Revenue Code and ERISA and the associated regulatory authority, including the HIPAA provisions under the Code and ERISA, along with related regulations.

Extensive finding lists lead readers to the provisions of the Code, regulations and the many acts that govern pensions and benefits. A comprehensive topical index to the code and regulations is found in the second volume.

The third volume of the set contains the official IRS and Department of Labor preambles for final and temporary IRS and ERISA regulations. The preambles provide important explanatory material that aids in understanding the final regulations.

This title is based on materials from the loose-leaf CCH Pension Plan Guide and reflects all regulatory and statutory changes to January 1, 2000. The new edition reflects all pertinent regulations issued during the last year, including coverage of the numerous technical corrections to the 1996 Small Business Job Protection Act affecting SIMPLE plans.

Also available is Pension and Employee Benefits - Code - ERISA – Regulations, a two-volume reference without the preambles.
