What is ERISA?
ERISA: The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974
Employers offering an employee benefit plan, such as long-term/short-term disability insurance, life insurance, health insurance, or a retirement plan, are subject to the provisions of ERISA.
ERISA was enacted to protect employee benefit plan participants and their beneficiaries from mismanagement and abuse by the benefit plan sponsors. ERISA mandates that those in charge of employee benefit plans must act in the best interests of plan participants. It also requires transparency and accountability, ensuring that participants have access to
information about their plans.
ERISA is a federal law which has different rules from other state insurance laws so you need a Lawyer who has plenty of ERISA experience!
