What I Do Best, 401k Quarterback

RETIREMENT PLANS

For Businesses

I'm good at what I do

Click Box to Verify my Credential

I’ve audited large plan 401K plans for 20+ years and helped those plans stay compliant with ERISA. Those same rules apply to small plans as well. Thus, I can implement both auditor and advisor procedures for your plan. I was an employee once too. I recall looking at my 401K statement thinking there has to be a better way; well there is. Don’t let your employees fall into guessing what’s best when a clear alternative is available. Provide meaningful investment  “education” that your employees can understand and implement, the “401k Quarterback” way.

TYPES OF RETIREMENT PLANS

401K PLANS

401Ks are the go-to retirement plan that offers employees a way to self-fund their retirement. Employer contributions are optional.

PEP-POOLED EMPLOYER PLANS

New in 2021, like a 401K but limit owner liability and responsibility. Employees self-fund their retirement with employer contributions optional. No audit for large plans.

SOLO-K PLANS

As the name suggests is best for the sole owner that wants to put away more for retirement than an IRA allows, can include a spouse.

403B PLANS

They act much like a 401K plan for non-profits, schools, government & religious type organizations.

PROFIT SHARING PLANS

This allows an employer to make deductible retirement contributions for all employees. It’s best if added as an additional component to a  plan.

SEP

Simplified Employee Pension only allows for employer contributions. This plan does not allow for additional plans.

CASH BALANCE PLAN

A pension-like plan will provide a larger deduction. Contributions for employees’ retirement are calculated yearly.

PENSION PLAN

This plan will cost the most. However, it offers a significant deduction based on employees’ years of creditable service calculated by an actuary. Best for companies with large profits & cash flow.

SIMPLE -IRA -401K

Allows for both employer and employee contributions. Limitations apply.

HSA

Health Savings Account – This is not technically a retirement plan, but it acts like one for current & future medical expenses.

ROTH

These can be included in 401K plans or for the individual, limitations apply.

IRA

These are not true “plans” but are a way for individuals to save for retirement with limitations.
