Fiduciary Health Check
Plan sponsors are required by law to understand and fulfill fiduciary responsibilities owed to their retirement plans. Failure to adopt fundamental practices could result in regulatory intervention and potentially significant personal liability for plan fiduciaries.
Benefit Plans Plus, LLC helps clients take the prudent approach by focusing solely on the interests of plan participants and their beneficiaries. We perform a “snapshot” assessment of current fiduciary compliance structures and processes; our assessment immediately identifies opportunities, improves procedures and systems – saving you time and money.
