Plan Design and Creation
We can help!
Plan design and creation form the bedrock of a successful retirement strategy. Our consultants collaborate closely to understand your unique goals, demographics, and budgetary constraints. We conduct a thorough analysis of existing retirement plans or work from scratch to develop a tailored plan that aligns with your objectives and ensures compliance with regulatory requirements.
During the design phase, our retirement plan consultants focus on crafting a plan that maximizes benefits for employees while offering tax advantages for both the workforce and the organization. We consider various factors, such as contribution limits, vesting schedules, investment options, and eligibility criteria, to create a plan that strikes the right balance between flexibility and stability.
Whether it’s implementing automatic enrollment, introducing target-date funds, or incorporating employer matching contributions, our goal is to create a retirement plan that promotes financial security and engagement among employees.

Designing the Document
There is no such thing as a “one size ﬁts all” 401k plan. Why? Employer goals for a 401(k) plan can vary greatly. Some employers want to maximize owner contributions at the lowest overall cost while others want to incentivize employees to save a portion of their paycheck for retirement. The process of matching 401(k) specifications to employer goals is called plan design.
Adopting the Plan
The finished document must be adopted and signed by the business of person sponsoring the plan. The qualified retirement plan will then be active and functioning.
