This is particularly true for DB pension plans attempting to terminate and purchase annuities to fund all accrued benefits. The value of the assets in plans has fallen precipitously; many have declined 30-40 percent. The 100 largest U.S. pensions declined by 26 percent in 2008 and were about 79 percent funded versus being overfunded in 2007. While the markets appear to have improved since the end of 2008, many US pension plans remain largely underfunded. Furthermore, with interest rates at low levels, the cost to purchase annuities to fund benefits has risen dramatically. The same is true with individuals in 401(k) plans who have seen their account balances decrease by 40 percent or more.</p> Fri, 06 Nov 2009 10:53:18 GMT Tahmidur Remura Dewey LeBoeuf Welcomes Howard Adler as Co-Chair of its Compensation, Benefits And Employment Practice Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Firm/MediaCenter/PressReleases/2008/08/DeweyLeBoeufWelcomesHowardAdlerasCoChairofitsCompensationBenefitsAndEmploymentPractice <p>(New York, August 20, 2008) - Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP is pleased to announce that Howard Adler has joined the firm as co-chair of its global Compensation, Benefits and Employment Department.</p> Wed, 18 Nov 2009 17:20:15 GMT Securities and Exchange Commission Proposes Additional Proxy Statement Disclosure; Eliminates Broker Discretionary Voting for Directors Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2009/07/20090702_SecuritiesandExchangeCommissionProposesAdditionalProxyStatementDisclosure Wed, 13 Jan 2010 14:12:17 GMT House Passes the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008 Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2008/10/20081003_HousePassestheEmergencyEconomicStabilizationActof2008 Wed, 03 Feb 2010 15:17:19 GMT American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 Changes COBRA Continuation Coverage Rules Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2009/02/20090217_AmericanRecoveryandReinvestmentActof2009ChangesCOBRAContinuationCoverageRules Tue, 09 Feb 2010 17:25:55 GMT Final Regulations Issued on Deferred Compensation Under Section 409A Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2007/04/20070420_FinalRegulationsIssuedonDeferredCompensationUnderSection409A Thu, 11 Feb 2010 13:02:28 GMT Final Regulations Issued Under Code Section 409A Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2007/04/20070411_FinalRegulationsIssuedUnderCodeSection409A Thu, 11 Feb 2010 13:10:03 GMT Partial Termination Guidance Announced Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2007/06/20070628_PartialTerminationGuidanceAnnounced Thu, 11 Feb 2010 14:20:57 GMT New Proposed Cafeteria Plan Regulations Issued Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2007/08/20070814_NewProposedCafeteriaPlanRegulationsIssued Thu, 11 Feb 2010 14:44:49 GMT Securities and Exchange Commission Staff Reports Observations in Initial Review of Executive Compensation Disclosure Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2007/10/20071012_SecuritiesandExchangeCommissionStaffReportsObservationsinInitialReviewofCompensation Thu, 11 Feb 2010 14:58:37 GMT New 409A Correction Program Unveiled Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2007/12/20071217_New409ACorrectionProgramUnveiled Thu, 11 Feb 2010 15:11:41 GMT ISS 2008 US Proxy Voting Policies Updates Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2008/01/20080129_ISS2008USProxyVotingPoliciesUpdates Thu, 11 Feb 2010 15:49:57 GMT SEC Adopts New Exemptions From the Exchange Act Registration Requirements for Compensatory Employee Stock Options Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2008/01/20080102_SECAdoptsNewExemptionsFromtheExchangeActRegistrationRequirementsforEmployeeStockOptions Thu, 11 Feb 2010 16:12:53 GMT SEC Releases Interactive Tool to Compare Compensation of Executives at Largest Public Companies in US Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2008/01/20080107_SECReleasesInteractiveTooltoCompareCompensationofExecutivesatLargestPublicCompaniesinUS Thu, 11 Feb 2010 16:34:11 GMT Department of Labor Issues Guidance on Schedule C Reporting of Service Provider Compensation Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2008/07/20080722_DepartmentofLaborIssuesGuidanceonScheduleCReportingofServiceProviderCompensation Thu, 11 Feb 2010 16:42:05 GMT DOL Issues Proposed Disclosure Regulations Http://www.deweyleboeuf.com/en/Ideas/ClientAlerts/2008/07/20080729_DOLIssuesProposedDisclosureRegulations Thu, 11 Feb 2010 17:08:46 GMT <i>Kentucky Retirement Income Systems v.
