Keeping employees around until they retire is one thing, offering them the right retirement plan so they can enjoy their retirement is another.
At EJReynolds, we understand how important plan design is. Some firms want to attract and retain qualified employees. Others are looking to minimize compliance risk and control costs. Still others are looking for the maximum contributions to the owners.
That’s why we work with every client, both at the onset of the plan and each year, to ensure that the plan still meets the needs of the firm, while providing meaningful benefits to their employees, and minimizing tax risks to the owners.
The right TPA should have Expert Knowledge, Dedicated Service, Great Solutions and lead to growth for you and your clients.
