Fidelity and Fiduciary Bonds

Client Centered

There are a whole host of compliance implications that accompany the process of assisting plan sponsors. We will help you ensure that each client understands their fiduciary responsibility, and manages it appropriately. This is an important form of insurance protection that covers policyholders and is required for every administrator, officer, and employee of any plan who handles funds or other property.

Fiduciary Liability Insurance

Fiduciaries share responsibility and are subject to standards of conduct because they act on behalf of participants in a retirement plan and their beneficiaries. Any owner or officer making decisions about a company’s 401(k) plan or other qualified employee benefit plans may be held personally liable for any breach of their responsibilities in managing employee benefit plans. With the additional focus on fiduciaries and their responsibilities for ERISA plans, many employers have questions about fiduciary liability insurance. While not required, ERISA section 410 allows a plan to purchase insurance for its fiduciaries or for itself covering any losses occurring from fiduciary breach.
