Strong fiduciary oversight and protecting workers’ benefits is one of the highest priorities of the U.S. Department of Labor.  The best way to protect workers’ benefits is by preventing problems before they start.  Our compliance assistance program – Getting It Right – Know Your Fiduciary Responsibilities – will increase awareness and understanding about basic fiduciary responsibilities when operating a retirement plan. 

Getting it right, however, can be challenging.  This is especially true for small and medium sized employers who have limited time, resources, and access to professional help with benefit programs.

Specifically, getting it right means:

  • Understanding your plan and your responsibilities;
  • Carefully selecting and monitoring service providers;
  • Making contributions on time;
  • Avoiding prohibited transactions; and
  • Making appropriate disclosures to plan participants and filing annual reports to the government on time.

Our program combines free seminars around the country, educational materials, and a dedicated webpage on EBSA’s website.  With the valuable participation of our partners, Getting It Right will offer a helping hand to those who want to do the right thing.

We hope will attend this upcoming seminar by the U.S. Department of Labor.  Helping fiduciaries to get it right benefits us all.
