The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) contains a requirement for annual audits of plan financial statements by an independent qualified public accountant. According to the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA), "39% of the audits (nearly 4 out of 10) contained major deficiencies with respect to one or more relevant GAAS requirements which would lead to rejection of a Form 5500 filing, putting $653 billion and 22.5 million plan participants and beneficiaries at risk."
