Your Rights Under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
The Employer Retirement Income Security Act was passed in 1974 in an effort to establish federally mandated guidelines for the pension and health benefit plans an employer offers to its employees. While it is critical to indicate that the provisions of ERISA do not require San Antonio employers to provide their employees with either a pension or retirement plan, ERISA does establish a minimum standard for these benefits should an employer choose to provide them.
When pension and health benefit plans are provided by employers, employees can expect that vital information will be communicated to them about the plan and, furthermore, that they will be able to receive the benefits promised to them.
