Today, ForUsAll, a 401(k) advisor for small- and mid-sized businesses, has launched its Safe Harbor Plan Resource Center to help employers understand the ins and outs of Safe Harbor 401(k) plans. Available for free, employers will find a “Safe Harbor 101” handbook that explains when a Safe Harbor 401(k) is needed and how they function, as well as a Safe Harbor Cost Calculator to help estimate costs of implementing this typically costly plan.
Safe Harbor 401(k) plans are a last-resort for employers looking to bypass certain IRS compliance tests. “As an independent 401(k) advisor and fiduciary, we work hard to help our clients achieve high participation rates and avoid having to offer a safe harbor plan,” said David Ramirez, ForUsAll’s Chief Investment Officer. “We are offering this Safe Harbor Resource Center knowing that plan sponsors have questions about their existing plans, but aren’t getting straight answers about Safe Harbor costs and implications from their current service providers. And we know that if their existing advisor is not helping them become compliant and still struggling to meet fiduciary requirements, we might be able to help.”
