Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 or ERISA for short. It is a federal law that applies to many private employers, but not to all. The simplest way to understand ERISA is that it establishes minimum standards for retirement (pension plans such as 401(k)s, etc.), health, and other welfare benefit plans, including life insurance, disability insurance, and apprenticeship plans.

An ERISA fidelity bond is a type of insurance that protects the plan against losses caused by acts of dishonesty or fraud. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) sets rules and standards of conduct for private sector employee benefit plans and those that invest and manage their assets or plans. The provisions of ERISA are administered by the U.S. Department of Labor. The provisions were enacted to address public concerns that funds of private pensions and other employee benefit plans were being mismanaged and abused. One of ERISA’s requirements is that people who handle pension plan funds and other property must be covered by a fidelity bond to protect the plan from losses due to dishonesty or fraud.

Under ERISA, each person must be bonded in an amount equal to at least 10% of the amount of funds he or she handled in the preceding year. (Note: Bonds covering more than one plan may be required to be over $500,000 to meet the ERISA requirement because persons covered by a bond may handle funds or other property for more than one plan.)

The bond amount cannot, however, be less than $1,000, and the Department of Labor cannot require a plan official to be bonded for more than $500,000, or $1,000,000 for plans that hold employer securities. These amounts apply for each plan named on a bond.
