Crime Coverage

ERISA Fidelity Bonds

Federal ERISA Regulations require that all pension plans, including 410(k) plans be insured by an ERISA bond, sometimes referred to as a fidelity bond.

Every person who handles or controls plan funds is required to be bonded for at least 10% of the plan assets up to a limit of $500,000.

ERISA Bonds are inexpensive and often written on a three year term. These bonds cover loss incurred by an Insured Plan resulting directly from dishonest or fraudulent acts committed by an employee.

Bond Features:

  • Broad language that extends coverage to any plans of named sponsor
  • Blanket protection on all employees – no need to buy multiple bonds
  • Inflation Guard – limits do not need to be continually increased as assets grow

It is important to differentiate that this is not a liability coverage for your plan,  a separate fiduciary liability policy is available to provide that.
