Introduce Your Clients to a Simpler 401(K) Plan
If you have clients who think an employee 401(k) plan is too expensive or complicated to administer, we have a solution that may be ideal for them. The Paychex Pooled Employer (PEP) 401(k) is an easy-to-manage, turnkey plan for any size business. The benefits? Simplified administration and easy online enrollment, reduced fiduciary liability, and the potential for savings.
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.
More Access Means More Business
The simplified Pooled Employer Plan (PEP) 401(k) enables a wider range of businesses to offer employee retirement plans. More access can mean more plans--and more business for your practice.
