TRADITIONAL 401(k) plan

A 401(k) is a type of workplace savings plan that allows employers and eligible employees to save and invest for retirement through payroll deductions.  Setting up and sponsoring a retirement plan is a valuable employee benefit and one that can be used to recruit, retain and reward your employees.

It is also a powerful savings plan for employers to optimize tax strategies, while saving for their own retirement future.

Setting up a plan and what to expect 



We start with a conversation to understand your ideal retirement plan and then, we work to create a custom plan design analysis that aligns with your business goals.


  • Discuss business goals for establishing retirement plan

  • Partner with retirement plan advisor 

  • Select a recordkeeper

  • Sign setup documents 

    – Plan document
    – Service Agreements
    – Recordkeeper documents

After the initial setup documents are complete, we host an onboarding conference call to clearly identify a timeline for setting up your plan and to answer any questions.  


For new plans, the process takes 4-6 weeks from the initial conversation to having a fully setup and operational retirement plan.
