Fiduciary Liability

Fiduciary Liability covers liability arising out of  an employer’s administration and management of employee benefits plans, including retirement and pension plans.

ERISA Coverage

Necestiated by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974.  All pension plan trustees and anyone else who handles pension funds must obtain a fidelity bond protecting the plan in the event of embezzlement and theft.  This bond does not provide coverage in the event poor investment choices result in losses. The amount of the bond must be at least 10% of the pension plan’s assets or $1000, whichever is greater.

Miscellaneous Professional Liability

General Liabilty and Directors & Officers coverage specifically exclude bodily injury or property damage arising out of professional services.  If your organization performs a specific professional service, be it legal, medical, or a combination thereof, you should consider coverage that will protect you for suits alleging wrongful acts or failure in the performance of those duties.

Miscellaneous Professional Liability, also referred to as Errors & Omissions or Malpractice is another critical element in a well designed program.
