An ERISA bond is basically a fidelity bond that protects 401(k) and retirement plans. The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) was enacted in 1974 to regulate most types of employee benefit plans. ERISA bonds protect the retirement plans, participants and beneficiaries from dishonesty and fraud committed by individuals who are associated with them. The Act requires that a fidelity bond be in place to cover the fiduciary and anyone associated with the management of the covered plan.
