ERISA Bonds Coverage Details
ERISA bonds protect participants in and beneficiaries of employee benefit plans from dishonest acts of trustees of employee benefit plans. Fiduciaries and other individuals who handle employee benefit plans must have ERISA bonds.
ERISA bonds are fidelity bonds, and they do not pay losses for employee benefit plan participants or beneficiaries; ERISA bonds guarantee that participants in and beneficiaries of employee benefit plans can pay losses up to face amounts of the bonds. ERISA bonds only pay in the stead of employee benefit plan participants or beneficiaries in events in which participants in or beneficiaries of employee benefit plans are unable to meet obligations.
ERISA fidelity policies must equal 10 percent of funds that are handled by trustees of or fiduciaries of employee benefit plans, and also ERISA fidelity policies must have minimum limits of $1,000 per plan and maximum limits of $500,000 per plan. Employee benefit plans that hold employer securities must carry maximum limits of $1 million.
