Yes: Section 412 of ERISA required that fiduciaries and other persons who handle or are responsible for the assets of a qualified plan must be bonded. The bond is to reimburse the plan if any plan assets are lost through the fraud or dishonesty of persons handling plan funds.  Fraud or dishonesty includes such acts as theft, forgery, embezzlement, misappropriation, or willful misapplication of plan assets.
