Small Business 401K

 Helping mission-driven entrepreneurs elevate their businesses with retirement plans that better support their employees' financial health while enjoying potential business tax benefits. 

Empowering the Engines of Business

Keeping talented employees is the backbone of many successful businesses and having access to quality employer-based retirement plans is the backbone for many people’s future financial well-being.

Small businesses employ 58.9 million people, which makes up 47.5% of the country’s total employee workforce.

- SBA, 2019

Common Concerns

  • Losing talent to firms with better retirement benefits?
  • Finding retirement plan solutions too costly or complex?
  • Have an existing retirement plan but don't remember the last time you saw your Account Executive?
  • Don't believe you have the fiduciary knowledge or experience to manage a retirement plan appropriately?
  • Your business is in Maryland state and has not yet complied with the new Maryland state-mandated retirement plan law?

Why Does This Matters?

Small Businesses may be Affected by:

  • Lower retention puts a strain on business budgets and existing employee morale

  • Greater financial stress and financial insecurity about their future may reduce employee productivity or increase turnover

  • A business may be out of compliance with existing state-mandated retirement plans and/or DOL ERISA guidelines 

    • For example, Maryland requires small businesses with 2 years of operation AND with 5 or more employees on automatic payroll to provide a form of employer retirement plan option.
