401(k) and (for nonprofits) 403(b) accounts have become the primary means by which most employees in the United States save for retirement. Under the Employee Retirement Income and Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”), an employer is required to operate ERISA plans solely in the best interests of its participating employees. A plan may select only prudent investment and charge only reasonable fees. As the United States Supreme Court held in its Tibble v. Edison decision, it is a breach of fiduciary duty for a plan sponsor to waste employee assets by paying unnecessary fees. The United States Department of Labor has consistently expressed concerns about the detrimental impact of fees on the growth of employees’ retirement savings. The U.S. Department of Labor has estimated that over 35 years a 1% difference in fees and expenses can reduce a participant’s account balance at retirement by as much as 28%.
