Today, offering a retirement plan can be a complex and risky proposition


Your risk exposure has escalated exponentially. Fiduciary liability. Regulatory uncertainty and change. Lawsuits against firms of all sizes. It’s scary out there.


Setting up a plan yourself means finding and overseeing a recordkeeper, ERISA lawyer, investment advisor and more, requiring areas of expertise that aren’t in your wheelhouse.


When you purchase a retirement plan on your own, there are no economies of scale. You may end up paying higher fees for every component of a plan, delivering less value.


Regulations. Administrative detail. HR questions. Every minute spent dealing with your retirement plan takes resources away from your core business: engineering.
