Tragically, we have seen an alarming increase in the sexual abuse of Indiana children recently. We shook our head in amazement when we read about the depraved sexual escapades of Jared Fogle, the formerly likeable Subway pitchman recently sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to child pornography charges. More recently, an investigation into allegations of child pornography and child exploitation led to the abrupt resignation of Park Tudor basketball coach, Kyle Cox. It seems like every week we are reading about new allegations that involve one of our children’s teachers, coaches or mentors.

Do you know whether your 401(k) plan administrator is making decisions in the best interests of your financial well-being? One group of Indiana employees has asked that question and now is taking action to protect themselves.
In December 2015, some Indiana residents with 401(k)s alleged in a class action lawsuit that Anthem breached the fiduciary duty owed to 401(k) plan participants by allowing the charging of unreasonable fees to 401(k) accounts. The Anthem plaintiffs contend that, even though cost-effective options exist, Anthem selected high-cost and badly-performing investments.
