Employee Benefits And ERISA Basics
Federal law protects workers. In 1974, Congress passed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Under this law, workers can hold employers and benefit providers responsible for failed management of retirement funds and the protection of retirement benefits.
Your benefits protection applies to:
- Pensions and 401(k) plans
- Employee stocks
- Medical, dental and disability benefits
If a fiduciary, the party responsible for managing your funds and benefits, mismanages your funds, alters your benefits without adequate notice or fails to fulfill their duties in any way, you may be able to bring suit. Their negligent actions should not damage your retirement options.
