It has been nearly three years since the Plan Sponsor and Participant fee disclosure regulations went into effect. While plan sponsors and service providers have made efforts to comply with the disclosure requirements, the regulations have significant implications within ERISA’s legal framework that extend beyond the mere provision of disclosure notices. Using the disclosures to determine the reasonableness of such fees is an integral part of the purpose of these regulations and failure to adequately do so could result in fiduciary liability and/or prohibited transactions.
This Web seminar is for plan sponsors and practitioners who would like to better understand their obligations under ERISA Section 408(b)(2) to obtain adequate disclosures from service providers and to ensure that their service arrangements are reasonable. The seminar builds on your basic understanding of the fee disclosure requirements to identify best practices that maximize compliance with the requirements of ERISA.
