401(k) Plan Services
From establishing a new 401(k) to providing an independent, third-party review of an existing plan, Norwood Economics provides large and small business owners with the support, advice, and education they need to ensure top plan performance.
A retirement plan that's right for your business
Not knowing is expensive
We frequently save small business 401(k) plans 40% to 50% in expenses on an all-in basis (TPA, Record Keeper, Custodian, Plan Advisor, Investment Expenses). Those dollars stay in the plan earning a compound rate of return and helping participants (including the business owner) save substantially more for retirement.
Review an existing 401(K)
free, independent, third-party review
The Department of Labor strongly encourages 401(k) plan sponsors to conduct a independent, third-party review of their plan at least every three years. This should be done by someone not currently affiliated with the plan in any way and is not the same as your Plan Advisor's annual participant review.
The DOL wants business owners to be good fiduciaries, putting 401(k) plan participants’ best interests first. They want plan sponsors to see: whether their plan’s expenses are reasonable, whether the plan design is appropriate, and whether there are compliance issues that need to be addressed.
Plan designs are too often sub-optimal, failing to take advantage of all of the tax breaks allowed by ERISA (The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974).
