DID YOU KNOW?

The law requires you to “Benchmark” your plan on a regular basis. As the plan sponsor, you have a “fiduciary” obligation to make sure that your plan fees are fair and reasonable and that all decisions are made for the sole benefit of the employees. In 2014, the Department of Labor found 75% of the audit plans to be in violation and the average fine was $600,000.
