401(k) Fraud Lawyers

401(k) plans are the most common employer retirement plan among American workers. According to the Investment Company Institute, assets in 401(k) retirement plans surpassed $4.4 trillion. However, if a 401(k) is mismanaged or misused by your employers, your hard-earned money can disappear, leaving you without a backup plan when you retire.

If you feel that your employer or investment company is mismanaging your retirement account, you should speak with an experienced 401(k) mismanagement lawyer to help you recover your losses. For years, the 401(k) fraud lawyers at Sanford Heisler Sharp have been helping victims regain money lost by fraudulent activity.

What is Considered 401(k) Mismanagement?

For example, your employer may decide whether a matching contribution by the company will be made. Employers are also responsible for choosing the plan’s vendor and partly responsible in how the fees will be charged to the plan. However, if your employer neglects to maintain and monitor your 401(k) program, a substandard retirement plan for the workers could result. This can be considered 401(k) mismanagement.

According to the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”), there are minimum standards for most voluntarily established pension and health plans in the private sector to provide protection for workers who utilize these plans.
