Professor Norman Stein is presenting at the 7th Annual Employee Benefits ERISA Scholars Conference at the University of Oklahoma College of Law on April 13.
Stein will join Boston University School of Law Professor Maria O’Brien Hylton on remedies that have been put in place when administrators of Employee Retirement Income Security Act plans inadvertently overpay beneficiaries.
He will present a paper on the history of recoupment, the process by which plan administrators seek to recover the funds and interest by withholding or reducing subsequent payments.
More than a million individuals have faced recoupment after receiving excess payments through no fault of their own, says Stein, a nationally recognized authority on pension law, employee benefits and tax law who serves as chairman of the Association of American Law Schools Section on Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation.
Stein’s paper traces the history of recoupment and outlines the diverse perspectives of government agencies that play a role in interpreting and enforcing ERISA.
He joins Boston University School of Law Professor Maria O’Brien Hylton on of Employee Retirement Income Security Act Remedies.
