Employers are ultimately held responsible for the investment options offered within their retirement plan. But, ERISA law does allow for that responsibility to be transferred to an independent third-party.
The Security Benefit Workplace Retirement program transfers the investment fiduciary obligation and the associated liability to Mesirow Financial, an independent investment manager. Mesirow Financial is experienced in interpreting fiduciary requirements and contractually agrees to become the 3(38) fiduciary for your plan.
In addition to the 3(38) Fiduciary Services, Security Benefit provides the tools you need with our Fi360 reports. With an Fi360 investment comparison report, you can meet with employers to see if their current plan investment line-up meets the fiduciary standard of care.
Security Benefit has partnered with Mesirow Financial® to create Security Benefit Workplace Retirement Program. As the contracted 3(38) investment fiduciary to plan sponsors who choose Workplace Retirement program for ERISA plans, Mesirow Financial is responsible for the investment selection, investment monitoring, and investment replacement under the plan.
