At Fringe Benefit Group, Steve’s primary areas of responsibility include management and maintenance of all plan, trust, retainer and new client documents; new case submission and implementation; plan consulting, testing, and compliance support; ERISA and DOL compliance with defined contribution programs; and defined contribution plan product development.
