Pension Professional

As a fundamental safeguard, Errors & Omissions Insurance (E&O) for pension professionals provides coverage against losses from any actual or alleged negligent act, error or omission. It protects you and your company from claims if your client alleges that you or your company was professionally negligent or failed to perform professional duties.

Under ERISA, fiduciaries may be held 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. Covering yourself with Fiduciary Liability Insurance gives you a piece of mind that you are protected. Learn how to bundle your ERISA bond and Fiduciary Liability Insurance for a discounted rate.
