PLAN DESIGN

An effective retirement plan begins with sound plan design strategy and grows with attentive execution.  Specifically, a comprehensive Fiduciary Check-Up Program and annual Fiduciary Plan Review offer insight on how to improve value and promote operational efficiency.

 

Design elements impact every aspect of your plan—from investments and record keeping to compliance and communication.  In our experience with company plans, one overlooked

design flaw at the outset can cause unnecessary difficulties later.
