Benefit Plan Administration & Consulting Services
We design custom retirement plans geared to each client’s financial situation. We are unaffiliated with any investment advisor, custodian, record keeper or product line. While other providers may try to fit your needs into a box that is already created, we can work outside of the box to provide a personalized solution.
We strive to know you and your business. We listen to your needs, ask clarifying questions, and respond accordingly. These services include:
- Qualified plan documents ( including section 125 cafeteria plans)
Our solution will include customizing not only your plan design, but also the forms and procedures necessary to meet your specialized needs. Throughout our relationship, we will keep you and your staff abreast of fiduciary responsibilities, important deadlines, any changes in law, and trends in interpretation.
The end result is implementation of the best wealth accumulation and wealth protection plan for your employees. These services include employer/ employee communication.
