Last Tuesday, July 10, 2018, we notified you that the Motion Picture Industry Pension & Health Plans (MPIPHP) has been sending out billing notices for alleged delinquent contributions, including interest and liquidated damages, to some of our clients.

MPIPHP has confirmed that some of the delinquency notices sent on or after June 27, 2018 may have been issued in error.

If you have received a delinquency notice dated on or after June 27, 2018, no action is required at this time. MPIPHP will review your notice and contact you if further action is necessary. In the interim, MPIPHP has suspended the accrual of interest and liquidated damages from June 27, 2018 through the completion of MPIPHP’s review and final determination of this issue.

If you have already submitted a payment in response to a delinquency notice dated on or after June 27, 2018, MPIPHP will issue a refund pending its review.
