DOL Slams ING Life and Annuity With $5.2M Fine

deptoflaborThe Department of Labor announced Monday that it had reached a settlement agreement with ING Life Insurance and Annuity Co. (ILIAC) that provides for a $5.2 million payment to certain retirement plan clients adversely affected by ILIAC’s failure to disclose investment gains achieved when the company failed to process requested transactions in a timely manner. The department alleged that ILIAC’s failure to disclose its policy on reconciling transaction processing errors to retirement plan clients was a violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. Acting Labor Secretary Seth Harris said in a statement that this “settlement will restore funds to about 1,400 retirement plans and ultimately benefit hardworking Americans who are making sacrifices now in order to save for their retirement years,” according to a report at www.advisorone.com.
