An employer being able to offer a 401(k) through a PEP gives employees somewhere to begin, regardless of their socioeconomic status, and achieve their financial goals.
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. (PRWEB) November 05, 2021
Certified Financial Group, Inc., announced today the launch of the Certified 401(k)™ Pooled Employer Plan (PEP). The Certified 401(k)™ makes it possible for budget-conscious organizations of any size in any industry to offer their employees access to a 401(k) retirement plan.
Until recently, it cost businesses significant time and money to provide employees with a way to save for retirement. With the passing of the SECURE Act, however, now organizations of all sizes are able to pool their resources in a single plan, lowering the price of 401(k) administration and eliminating the administrative burden on business owners.
“This is a game changer,” says Joe Bert, founder and CEO of Certified Financial Group (CFG) and host of On the Money!, one of the area’s most listened to financial call-in radio programs. “More and more people are coming to the realization that Social Security isn’t going to cut it, and a retirement plan with tax deductibility is a silver bullet. We are proud to introduce the PEP to Central Florida to help businesses attract and retain employees with a 401(k) plan that could shape their financial future.”
Certified Financial Group’s PEP, the Certified 401(k)™, is a comprehensive, turn-key plan that’s suitable for startups and large organizations. It brings together the experience and clout of two CEFEX-Certified firms, Certified Advisory Corp (CFG's Resident Investment Advisor) and Slavic, to provide affordable record-keeping, plan administration, and investment management services. It’s an attractive alternative to SIMPLE and SEP plans as well.
Wynn Smith, Certified Financial Group’s expert PEP Consultant and Specialist, is passionate about simplifying the process and helping employers understand this lucrative opportunity for their employees. “Achieving financial goals isn’t just for those in the upper income brackets,” says Smith. “It’s for everyone; and some are starting on the lower end of the spectrum. An employer being able to offer a 401(k) through a PEP gives employees somewhere to begin, regardless of their socioeconomic status, and achieve their financial goals.”
