Fiduciary Issues of a Qualified Retirement Plan - IL

Fiduciary Issues of a Qualified Retirement Plan

Why do you need to understand the Employee Retirement Income Security Act - that massive compendium of regulations more commonly known as ERISA?  Whether you find yourself in the position of being a fiduciary or advising a plan fiduciary - you are controlled by the rules of ERISA and by the Department of Labor (DOL) regulations.  If you work with qualified plans - including defined benefit, defined contribution plans, 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans and IRA's - you need to understand these regulations thoroughly for your own self protection.  In case of errors, lack of knowledge is no excuse!

Fiduciary issues and concerns of a qualified retirement plan:

  • Understanding fiduciary responsibility
