We talk with you extensively to determine exactly what your goals and expectations are. Then we discuss a variety of benefit plan features and options. Finally, together, we look at all sides of the issues involved to find a winning solution for you and your company.

Implementing your plan
Implementation is all about timing. It is making sure that all of the pieces are in place and ready to go at the right time.
- We ensure all documents are signed and timely filed.
- We ensure that your employees have the appropriate information and have met eligibility requirements.
- We work with your broker or banker to ensure that the appropriate accounts for your plan have been established.
Once your Employee Benefit Plan is designed, and implemented, all that’s left is the administration.
