Hi, I’m Dan. I draft benefit plans.

I primarily work on loan regime split dollar agreements and non-qualified deferred compensation plans: evaluating design details, ensuring regulatory compliance, and gauging tax implications.

I also consult on reporting compensation to federal agencies such as the IRS and NCUA, and reviewing the data they publish.
