Plan Level Services
We are here for you beyond the basics of your company’s retirement plan. To help you feel confident with your plan and minimize the amount of work you have to do, we offer a number of plan level services designed to help you reduce your fiduciary liability, optimize company retirement plan contributions to achieve objectives, and evaluate your plan service providers.
Liability is a significant concern for many business owners. Plan sponsors often struggle to address the challenges of regulatory and ERISA compliance, manage fiduciary risk, and adequately prepare participants for retirement. This is often because they lack the time and tools needed to fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities. We assist plan sponsors with fiduciary risk management strategies, helping you keep your plan in compliance with ever-changing regulations, and systematically monitoring your plan’s investment options.
It’s important that you feel comfortable with what you are paying for the cost of your plan’s investments, recordkeeping, and administration. To evaluate the competitiveness of your plan and other options available, we regularly conduct independent cost benchmarking and due diligence market analysis. This allows us to leverage a potential cost reduction for you from your service providers.
In conducting provider analysis and benchmarking, we utilize a program that breaks down fees, returns, and risks and offers simple comparisons. This proprietary plan review process is designed to help plan sponsors eliminate the confusion and frustration of selecting a plan provider, and dramatically reduces the amount of time you must allocate to the evaluation of new plan providers. Through our benchmark review, we can determine if your plan needs to be updated, or if your plan is on track in meeting fiduciary obligations.
Plan Participant Education
We take a highly personal approach to plan participant education. We believe a successful participant education and communication program that includes one-on-one advice and ongoing guidance is critical to the success of your retirement plan. Working closely with your retirement plan committee, we create a personalized program tailored to your particular employee population, which may include:
- On-site group enrollment meetings
- On-site one-on-one enrollment meetings
- On-site group investment education meetings
- Video or web-based meetings
- Ongoing communication, memos, and announcements
