The owners want to implement a plan because their business is growing and they want to shelter some of those dollars. With growth comes more employees, and now it’s important to have a lot of them participate so it doesn’t affect the owner’s contribution amounts in testing. Eventually, businesses begin to attract great talent and you want them to stay, so the business owner decides to throw in a match. Great – this all sounds perfect.

Let’s think about your retirement plan differently.

Retirement plans can become another full-time job for companies and business owners. But what if it didn’t have to be that way? What if there was a way for you to trust someone else to make sure that the plan is being monitored and that when something requires your attention, you will be informed?

Hallelujah – we found a way! PGR Solutions can be your plan’s fiduciary advisor.

Retirement Plan Costs – Broken down and explained

It can be particularly confusing for plan sponsors and corporate CFOs to recognize what the cost is for the program. We have created a guide to help plan sponsors clearly identify those fees and understand what the plan actually costs. This guide is intended to be generic and help plan sponsors navigate the fees and costs of a retirement plan. PGR Solutions does not necessarily charge all of the fees described here.
