40 Years of ERISA

September 2, 2014

Authored by: Chris Rylands

ERISA has been modified by many pieces of legislation since it was signed into law on this day in 1974. In honor of ERISA’s “Big 4-0” we invite you to (1) find all of the abbreviations below for different acts that have amended ERISA and (2) come up with the full name for each abbreviated act. We will share the solution along with each act’s full name on Thursday. Good luck! *Note: letters are shared and acronyms go every direction. 



We will be sharing other thoughts and reflections on ERISA’s 40th throughout this week, so feel free to check back for more updates (and, of course, the solution to the word find).

We would like to extend a special thanks to our summer associate, Meredith Silliman, for her help in putting this together.
