Protection for ERISA Defined Contribution Plan FiduciariesMutual of America stands behind the selection and monitoring processes for the investment funds offered through the Separate Accounts under its contracts.
As evidence of our confidence in our investment products, we will indemnify a Plan Sponsor/Fiduciary who maintains and continues to contribute to an ERISA defined contribution Plan funded through the Company's group variable annuity contract against liability, losses or reasonable related expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs) that arise from ERISA fiduciary claims brought against the Plan Sponsor/Fiduciary with respect to the Separate Account investment funds offered under the Company's contract, subject to certain terms and conditions. These claims include the following:
- Breach by the Plan Sponsor/Fiduciary of ERISA's prudence and/or diversification requirements in its selection and monitoring of the investment funds.
- Failure by the investment funds offered under the Company's investment menu to meet ERISA Section 404(c)'s "broad range of investment alternatives" requirements to the extent applicable.
- Failure by any Qualified Default Investment Alternatives (QDIAs) offered under the Company's investment menu to meet one of the Department of Labor's investment product requirements for QDIAs.
