ERISA requires those who manage, oversee, recommend or handle funds or other property of an employee benefit plan to be covered by a Fidelity Bond, according to the U.S. Department of Labor.
Mercer Consumer offers both 1st and 3rd Party ERISA Bonds (for Investment Advisers). These bonds protect against acts of fraud or dishonesty by any officer, trustee, employee, administrator or manager of the insured benefit plan. As defined by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, the limit of liability must be 10% of each plan’s assets, subject to a minimum of $1,000 and up to a maximum of $500,000.
Most recent changes to this rule is if the plan invests in employer securities, such as company shares, the maximum bond amount is $1,000,000.

To protect the assets in your qualified pension and 401(k) plans as required by ERISA.
Even for Investment Advisers with non-discretionary control, we can tailor a bond to incorporate all of the plans you manage and administer to protect the qualified assets of those plans and satisfy your bonding requirement under ERISA.
