Setting up and maintaining a 401K can be extremely time-consuming.

Compliance with the regulations set by the government, IRS and Department of Labor is a necessity that every 401K must resolutely face. The average retirement plan audit lasts 42 business days. That means 42 days of your time taken away from adjusting jobs. Plans administered by TAG are consistently compliant, bringing the average number of business days for an audit down to just 10. In addition, no program administered by TAG has EVER failed a DOL audit.
Fact: 67.2% of companies 401Ks that are audited receive a fail from the Department of Labor. The majority of 401Ks hold the fiduciary responsible – that means YOU as the curator. If you have a plan administered by TAG, they are listed as the “Named Fiduciary”. This insures your personal protection to the highest degree. Talk about taking a load of your shoulders!
