Meeting Fiduciary Responsibility To meet their responsibilities as plan sponsors, employers need to understand some basic rules, specifically the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). ERISA sets standards of conduct for those who manage an employee benefit plan and its assets (called fiduciaries). Meeting Your Fiduciary Responsibilities, developed by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), provides a simplified overview of the basic fiduciary responsibilities applicable to retirement plans under the law. 

Understanding Retirement Plan Fees & ExpensesERISA requires that fiduciaries carry out their responsibilities prudently and solely in the interest of the plan's participants and beneficiaries. Among other duties, fiduciaries have a responsibility to ensure that the services provided to their plan are necessary and that the cost of those services is reasonable. This booklet, developed by the DOL, provides a simplified explanation of plan and investment fees.  It is designed to help retirement plan sponsors better understand and evaluate their plan's fees and expenses.  

Contributions Limit Table: Each year, IRS regulations dictate the maximum contributions that can be made to qualified retirement plans. View an up to date table of this year's limits.
