Disclaimer for Wrap Plan Document/Wrap SPDs
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) requires every employer‐sponsored health and welfare plan to have and maintain a written Plan Document and Summary Plan Description (SPD) (or a combined Plan Document and SPD). As the sponsor of an ERISA plan, it is your obligation to have these documents in place. We are able to produce The Wrap Plan document/Wrap SPD to assist you, the sponsoring employer, with your obligations under ERISA.
By producing this document for you, we are not assuming any legal responsibilities under ERISA. It is still your obligation to maintain a properly‐adopted written Plan Document/SPD for your ERISA plan, and to provide this document to participants as required under ERISA. You are also responsible for updating this document on a timely basis when there is a change in plan design or legal requirements. We can help you with this process, but it is your obligation to maintain up‐to‐date documentation of your ERISA plan.
The document is intended to cover all topics currently required under ERISA for Plan Document and SPD. We will base the document on information that is specific to your benefit plans.

It is solely the responsibility of the sponsoring employer to ensure that the terms of the Plan Document/SPD accurately reflect the terms of the plan. To avoid creating unintended liability, it is very important that your benefit plans are correctly described in this document and that your benefit communications to participants are Accurate.
The information in the Plan Document/SPD is provided “as is” without warranty of any kind. As the plan sponsor, you are in the best position to know how your benefit plan operates and it is very important that you carefully review the documents. We are not attorneys and, thus, we do not render legal advice. Since the Plan Document/SPD is of limited benefit without an attorney’s advice, you may wish to have your legal counsel review this document as well. We cannot in any way guarantee that the information in the Wrap Plan Document/Wrap SPDs is an accurate description of your plan, and we shall not be liable for any loss or damage that may arise as a result of your use of these documents.
