Plan sponsors can’t be expected to act as retirement plan experts. That’s why they usually pay experts to do just that. Those experts should do as much as possible for those clients, with the end result being “financially fit” employees. It has been proven that financially fit employees are more productive, bring less stress to the workplace, have lower absentee rates and can actually reduce healthcare premiums. Most importantly, employees that reach their retirement goals retire on time. This allows the employer to potentially save tens of thousands of dollars in healthcare costs and promote younger, lower cost employees from within their company.
Our Two Steps to Building A Stronger Retirement Plan
Step 1: Delegate the Administrative Duties of your 401(k) Plan
There’s no way around it. The administrative duties of managing a 401(k) plan are tedious, time-consuming and often stressful due to liability concerns. Most plan sponsors have neither the time nor expertise to handle the burdensome regulations, oversight, reporting, fiduciary process and best practices necessary to keep their plans on track. That’s where we can help. We can:
- Provide fiduciary investment management and required investment due diligence
- Identify and document measurable goals and objectives of the plan and ensure they are being met.
- Review your current service providers to determine if they are good fits to serve your company’s plan needs in a cost-effective manner.
- Ensure that fiduciary best practices and compliance responsibilities are being delivered and implemented.
