Provides liability coverage for a firm’s sponsorship of retirement or welfare plans for the benefit of employees. Liability is created under law for the plan, any trustee, officer or employee acting in the capacity of a ‘fiduciary’ for the management and maintenance of the assets of such plans. Such handling can be delegated, however the firm sponsor remains ultimately responsible.
Under ERISA law, a fiduciary can be held personally liable as a result of alleged errors, omissions or breach of fiduciary duties. These duties include selecting advisors and investments, minimizing expenses and adherence to plan documents. You also have a duty to act solely in the interest of plan participants and beneficiaries – not the company. Claims can be brought by various sources including plan participants, their legal estates, beneficiaries, the Department of Labor, and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.
