Employee Benefits Security Administration

An agency under the U.S. Department of Labor responsible for enforcing the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. Specifically, EBSA enforces a number of regulations designed to ensure that employers and other involved parties do not misuse the funds entrusted to them in retirement accounts. Among other provisions, EBSA requires retirement account managers to provide information to account holders on a regular basis. It also enforces standards for managers' use of discretionary authority. Until 2003, EBSA was known as the Pension and Welfare Benefits Administration, and before 1986 it was the Pension and Welfare Benefits Program.
