South Carolina ERISA Audits
401(k) plans have become one of the most popular retirement plan options offered by Columbia and South Carolina companies. To attract new talent and retain existing employees, it’s important to offer these plans as part of a comprehensive benefits package. Many face a challenge when the plan grows and meets the minimum requirement under a Department of Labor (DOL) ERISA Audit. Others that have been through a plan audit may have issues with their provider meeting deadlines, poor communication, or staff issues. To avoid these challenges, it’s important to work with a provider that has experience auditing 401(k) and other plans. This allows them to deliver value beyond the traditional audit through insights and best practices.
