Employee Benefit Plan Services

Giving You Peace of Mind That Your Plan is in Compliance

Administering employee benefit plans presents numerous challenges for human resource managers and plan administrators who must stay abreast of a changing business environment and evolving requirements. Adding to the human resource manager’s burden are the time and resources that must be devoted to plan audits in order to meet federal compliance requirements which are complex. Keeping up with changing regulations posed by the United States Department of Labor and the Internal Revenue Service is challenging and requires specialization and commitment from a CPA firm.
