Explanation of Fiduciary Liability Insurance

Fiduciary liability insurance is a specialized form of coverage that protects businesses and their fiduciaries from financial losses resulting from claims of breach of fiduciary duty, errors in plan administration, or other acts of negligence associated with the management of employee benefit plans[1]. As fiduciaries hold an essential role in managing and administering these plans, they can be held personally liable for any harm caused by their actions or decisions.

Here are a few scenarios where fiduciary liability insurance may be necessary:

  • Mishandling of employee retirement plans leading to financial losses for plan participants
  • Errors or omissions in plan administration, such as failing to enroll eligible employees or providing inaccurate information about plan benefits
  • Mismanagement of investments, resulting in diminished returns for plan participants

Coverage Details

Fiduciary liability insurance typically covers a range of legal expenses, including defense costs, settlements, and judgments related to fiduciary claims. It provides protection when fiduciaries are accused of breaching their duties, making errors in plan administration, or mismanaging employee benefit plans[2].

However, it’s important to note that fiduciary liability insurance may not cover intentional misconduct, fraud, or criminal acts. Additionally, it may not cover claims arising from violations of employment laws or general business liabilities. It’s crucial to review the policy terms and conditions to understand the specific coverage details provided by the insurance carrier.

Having fiduciary liability insurance offers several key benefits for your business:

  1. Protection against losses: Fiduciary claims can result in substantial financial losses. With fiduciary liability insurance, you have a safety net that can cover legal costs, settlements, or judgments, helping you mitigate financial risks.
