Sept. 2, 2004
On Sept. 2, 1974, exactly 30
years ago today, ERISA, The Employee Retirement Income Security Act,
was signed into law by President Gerald R. Ford. The congressional intent in enacting ERISA was to protect employees in pension and
welfare plans, to provide uniform federal protections in response to

benefits were threatened. 30 years later, ERISA Failure in its
compliance and enforcement left thousands of retirees without
medical benefits, and resulted in a skyrocketing national healthcare expenditure explosion with 45 million uninsured and a possible national pension bailout.
