Some estimates place the number of plans that are in violation of some aspect of ERISA regulations as high as 90%. As a pension plan administrator you are at a high risk of failing a Department of Labor Audit.

Not only has the Department of Labor (DOL) increased their enforcement of regulations but the fines levied by the DOL are personal. Several business owners and plan administrators at small companies have been fined to the point of financial ruin. As a trustee of an ERISA-regulated retirement plan, you are required to ensure that:
Investments are prudently managed.
The portfolio is diversified.
Performance is monitored regularly.
Due diligence is ongoing.
Prohibited transactions are avoided.
Decisions are made in the sole interest of participants and beneficiaries.
