While employee benefit plans may play an essential role in making your company an employer-of-choice, deficiencies are a problem for plan sponsors and administrators. Fines can exceed $1,000 per day without limit. Experience matters, and you should be confident that your employee benefit plan auditor has dedicated resources to understanding plans.
Did you know: The US Department of Labor (DOL) conducts inspections on employee benefit plan audits and regularly finds a deficiency rate that is too high to protect participants in employee benefit plans. And since plan sponsors and administrators have a fiduciary responsibility to the plan participants, a quality audit from a firm with experience and specialization goes a long way in meeting that fiduciary responsibility.
