We listen to your objectives, analyze the data, and have a thoughtful discussion with you to craft a customized plan that accounts for the various complex legal requirements.
We will design a retirement plan with your unique needs in mind, helping you understand the many different types of retirement plans available to arrive at a solution that appeals to you, your employees, and your bottom line.
A creative design can often save a plan sponsor more money than their investments may earn.
Our experienced team of professionals first and foremost sees that your plan stays compliant, verifies cash flows within the plan for each participant, and acts as an extended HR department to respond to questions/requests related to the company’s retirement plan.
Beyond the core compliance and trust accounting services, we annually review the plan and make recommendations to ensure the plan continues to meet your stated objectives accounting for demographic, legislative, and overall business changes.
Without the proper guidance and oversight, some Plans may fall out of compliance in form or operation and need corrective action to avoid potentially significant financial consequences.

When a couple is going through a divorce, their attorneys will often want to have an estimated current value of the Defined Benefit/Pension Plan that either spouse may have through their current or former employer.
