Is Your Company in Compliance?

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) contains a set of guidelines that govern employer-sponsored benefit plans. For many employers, those guidelines are nothing more than an impossible set of hoops to jump through, and often result in hefty fines.

The absence of an experienced professional who has the knowledge, qualifications, and time necessary to maintain your ERISA compliance is a common problem companies have. Anything less than a full-time employee dedicated to the documentation, maintenance, and distribution of ERISA paperwork can equate to undertaking unnecessary risk.

Common ERISA Violations

Failure to Distribute

Most individuals who are placed in charge of ERISA compliance have other administrative obligations within your organization. This may give them virtually no chance to disseminate ERISA paperwork and documentation to plan participants punctually. Both the employee responsible for distribution and their employer can be held accountable in the eyes of ERISA.

Improper Documentation

A Summary Plan Description must accurately and comprehensively tell employees what their benefits plan consists of and how it operates. This ranges from how benefit eligibility is calculated, to what their exact health insurance options are, and much more. Slight slipups or omissions can result in fines.
