How Does the PEP Benefit Your Clients?

The PEP is a multiple-employer plan designed to take the burden of administration off the employer’s hands. In the past, businesses in a multiple-employer plan had to be related by industry or association (such as a trade group). This made it easier for them to share a single plan and not have to file separate Forms 5500 or do individual audits. 

Now, under the SECURE Act, a PEP doesn't require employers to be related. Paychex is the named administrator for the plan and takes on most administrative responsibilities. This alleviates the burden of plan management and decreases fiduciary liability, making it more attractive to smaller businesses.
