  • Defined Benefit Plans
  • 403(b) Plans
  • Profit Sharing Plans

Our corporate benefit services include:

Plan consulting and design

We review your existing plan documents, plan provisions, assets and investment choices, and make plan design recommendations that meet your plan's goals and objectives.

Plan conversion and enrollment services

As part of plan conversion, we implement the transition of your plan administration and help you communicate all of the necessary information to your employees.

Fiduciary support services

Meeting your fiduciary responsibilities can be a complex process. We help control risk by developing a formal investment policy statement and establishing clear criteria for selecting and monitoring investment managers.

Ongoing client services

We work in conjunction with your plan's custodian and third party administrator to coordinate benefit distributions, plan contributions, participant statements and more.

Compliance

We are experienced in retirement plan compliance and can work with you and both your third party administrator and custodian to keep your plan current with ERISA and other regulatory requirements.

Investment selection

We recommend and provide access to a broadly diversified selection of investments from respected fund managers with long track records, without any inappropriate bias or incentives on our part. For deferred compensation plans, we evaluate your current funding arrangements, including life insurance. We subsequently can recommend and provide access to options that may be more current and cost‐effective through our independent relationships with many of the nation's leading insurance carriers.
