Protect yourself with fiduciary liability insurance (FLI) & included Cyber Liability Insurance.

Under ERISA, fiduciaries may be personally liable for a breach of their responsibilities in the administration or handling of employee benefit plans. Under ERISA 410, the plan cannot relieve you of this responsibility with indemnification language. However, it specifically permits persons with personal liability to purchase Fiduciary Liability Insurance.

Did you know the Department of Labor states that not having cyber liability insurance to protect your plan is a fiduciary breach?  “Responsible plan fiduciaries have an obligation to ensure proper mitigation of cybersecurity risks”.*DOL
