Business Meeting

What we are always hearing from our clients...

  • I spend too much time on the 401(k)

  • I'm not a 401(k) expert

  • What notices am I supposed to send out and when?

  • I'm afraid that I'm going to make a costly mistake

  • This is too much and keeps me from more important work

  • I have no idea what a good 401(k) investment menu looks like

  • Do we have the right number and types of investment funds?

  • What's my liability if an employee doesn't like a fund?

  • I don't know if our fees are high or low

  • How do our plan fees stack up?
