Why Buy Fiduciary Liability Insurance?


If your company offers a plethora of benefits to your employees including a pension plan, then you are a fiduciary, as is anyone who handles or verses the plan. However, did you know if a fiduciary makes a mistake, the fiduciary and the company could be held liable?

Under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 or ERISA, fiduciaries are personally accountable for any breaches of duties towards participants of a pension plan. If an employee benefit plan is poorly managed or employees are not offered efficient instruction or information on said plan, fiduciaries will have no choice but to make up for any losses incurred through these errors. In an instant, a fiduciary’s personal assets will be in jeopardy and your company’s reputation on the line.

There’s no need to face risk unprotected. Keep your plan participants and yourself covered with Fiduciary Liability Insurance. As a plan fiduciary, Fiduciary Liability Insurance covers your penalty and defense costs needed to fend off any claims up to $1,000,000.
