This document announces the availability of the Year 2001 Form M-1, Annual Report for Multiple Employer Welfare Arrangements (MEWAs) and Certain Entities Claiming Exception (ECEs). A copy of the new form is attached.
This year's Form M-1 is substantively identical to the Year 2000 Form M-1. In addition, the filing deadlines for the Year 2001 Form M-1 parallel those for last year's form. Specifically, the Year 2001 Form M-1 is generally due March 1, 2002, with an extension until May 1, 2002 available. These Year 2001 deadlines were also previously published; they are included in the Department of Labor's regulations implementing the Form M-1 filing requirement and they were set forth in last year's Form M-1.
PWBA is committed to working together with administrators to help them comply with this filing requirement. Additional copies of the Form M-1 are available on the Internet at: http://www.dol.gov/dol/pwba. In addition, after printing, copies will be available by calling the PWBA toll-free publication hotline at 1-800-998-7542.
