Benchmark Your Company’s 401(k)

Is your 401 (K) plan in compliance? We can help you find out.


ERISA Section 408(b)(2) allows for the payment of expenses from a 401 (k)plan to the extent those expenses are reasonable. The question for most plan sponsors...how do I know if expenses are reasonable?
