At the time of its publication, ERISA had established regulatory oversight with three government agencies. The Department of Labor sets out rules and responsibilities for trust managers, disclosure, and reporting. The IRS is responsible for creating and managing joint-stock funds and the rules for their acquisition; and the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corps (PBGC) was established as an insurer guaranteeing private pension funds.
ERISA requires the appointment of a trustee to manage any plans or funds. The representative is responsible for updating the plan, notifying staff, keeping records, and meeting mandatory reporting requirements. Guardians have the will or authority over plans and financial matters.
