requires plans to provide participants with information about the plan.
sets minimum standards for participation, vesting, benefit accrual and funding.
requires accountability of plan trustees.
gives participant the right to sue for benefits and breaches of legal duty.
guarantees payments of certain benefits if defined plan is terminated.
