Many plans originally set up by Employers on the advice of their broker and/or payroll company turn out to lacking many key features of a well thought out retirement plan. As such, we move a large amount of retirement plans to ur platform every year. Although the takeover process is a little more time consuming, it is not a difficult task. Generally the process is as follows:

  • Review Existing Plan

  • Notify Employees of Change
  • Audit Existing Plan

Your Plan Document determines how your plan is run. It is extremely important that your plan is designed correctly. There are ways to minimize employer expenditures while maximizing employer contributions to certain employees. That is why it is important to setup your plan with a firm that specializes in plan design and administration.
