New National Coalition on Benefits Champions National Uniformity The National Coalition on Benefits (NCB) launched today and announced its commitment to work with Congress to protect employers' ability to provide uniform health and retirement benefits to employees, their dependents and retirees across state and local lines. For employers to continue do this, it is essential to ensure that federal health reform initiatives preserve the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). The Coalition comprises a large range of business associations and companies from diverse industries, all united in their support for ERISA, which provides comprehensive federal regulation of employee benefits. The central element of the ERISA framework is that employers are able to maintain uniform benefit plans. Most Americans receive health insurance coverage from their employers, so a national standard is essential.
