    Details: You are conducting an annual benefits review for your company. You must determine what, if any, changes should be made for the following plan year. This is a great opportunity to design and implement a benefits package that includes more than what is currently offered. The current plan includes an indemnity health plan, long-term disability and life insurance.

    As you prepare your plan recommendations, consider how to create a plan that is competitive within the industry, is financially feasible for the organization, and meets the needs of the employees.

    In your plan you should address the following:

    * Legal regulations to be considered
    * The issues/challenges need to be considered with this new benefit program
    * How the new benefit program will be communicated to managers and employees?
