Actuarial Malpractice Expert in ERISA Regulations
An actuarial malpractice expert was requested for a professional malpractice action involving ERISA regulations. The defendant, an actuarial firm, was retained to do calculations for the plaintiff’s retirement plan under ERISA. Plaintiff sought economic damages for professional actuarial malpractice, alleging the defendant didn’t alert plaintiff to taxation issues relevant to an employee receiving a lump sum distribution. Defendant contended it was not retained to administer the plan, only to perform calculations.
The client sought an expert in ERISA regulations and the standard of care for actuaries in pension plans. The expert was needed to opine on the responsibilities of the actuary in addressing IRS regulations, specifically the Top 25 Rule, in these circumstances. The expert was required to have prior testimony experience, preferably explaining aspects of Actuarial Standard of Care and Scope of Engagement to the court.
