The Employee Retirement Income Security Act, or ERISA, sets out minimum standards under which private retirement and health plans must operate to provide protection for employees and their families. The law pertains to voluntary pension and welfare plans established for the benefit of employees and their beneficiaries, if funds are contributed in any manner by an employer or employee.

If it seems to you that life in the 21st Century has become more complicated, you are definitely not alone in that view. When it comes to dealing with serious issues that affect your health and well-being, your employment and earning ability, discrimination or equality issues and insurance claims, the multitude of laws and regulations can seem endless and confusing.
One bit of legislation, first passed in 1974, continues to play a role in protecting workers and their families in important ways. Termed the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), it may seem like “alphabet soup,” and it has faced its share of controversy and misunderstanding over the years.
Sometimes, state and federal laws may seem at odds, and interpretations occasionally differ from one jurisdiction or application to another. Not surprisingly, many Americans will need to seek legal advice at one point or another to deal with some of their concerns, and the selection of the right attorney to represent you is a decision that must be made wisely, based on your specific needs and expectations.
