1. ERISA compliance refers to the federal requirements employers must follow to offer welfare and retirement programs. Companies that offer benefit packages to their employees are regulated by ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security ACT), and maintaining compliance with these guidelines is a federal requirement. The goal of ERISA is to protect employees from being negatively impacted by retirement plans and company-provided welfare programs like dental, optical, and disability insurance. The law requires that employers abide by specific administration guidelines to ensure that all individuals are completely aware of their options and the processes of utilizing the benefits. All private institutions that offer things like retirement plans or health insurance must meet ERISA stipulations. Two types of organizations that aren’t governed by these rules are churches and government entities.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the erisa law for pension plans?

ERISA The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), a federal statute, delineates minimum standards for the administration of private industry's pension plans and establishes the impact that federal income taxes will have on transactions associated with management of such pension plans.

Does erisa apply to solo 401k plans?

Is your 401k plan compliant with erisa reporting requirements?
