Integrated Retirement Hires New ERISA Expert

Integrated Retirement, a provider of retirement plan content and training, has added Todd Berghuis to its team of Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) experts. As senior ERISA counsel, Berghuis is tasked with helping clients navigate the increasingly complex regulatory retirement plan environment.

“We’re extremely fortunate to have Todd on board,” says Pam O’Rourke, senior vice president at Integrated Retirement. “He’s highly-regarded in the industry and has been front and center in helping to shape retirement plan legislation and regulation, including the DOL’s recently released Conflict of Interest rule. Especially given the current environment, we’re excited that our clients will be able to benefit from his incredible wealth of knowledge.”

In addition to providing technical and compliance support to clients, Berghuis will be Integrated Retirement’s liaison to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Department of Labor (DOL) and other governmental entities. He will also continue to serve as chairman of the DOL Subcommittee of ASPAA’s Government Affairs Committee and to speak about technical and regulatory issues around the country.

Berghuis has been an ERISA attorney and consultant in the retirement and financial services industry for more than 30 years. Prior to joining Integrated Retirement, Berghuis spent 15 years at Ascensus, serving as senior vice president of ERISA Compliance since 2008.
