Make Your 401(k) Program Work for Your Business

November 22, 2021

If you’re like many 401(k) plan sponsors, you feel responsibility for your participants’ financial well-being but may take a hands-off approach to managing your plan design. This is how many plans end up with inadequate employee contributions and neglected.

The right retirement plan through Riggle Wealth Group will help you recruit, retain, and reward employees as well as establish a culture of healthy financial habits within your company. When you put the wellbeing of your employees first, you create more than just a name for your company, you create a legacy.

Let's start with some basic questions...

Is your 401(k) program working for your business? Today, many successful business owners are using advanced retirement strategy designs to manage tax liabilities. For example, a Roth 401(k) paired with a profit-sharing or defined benefit plan gives you the opportunity to:

  • Forego a deduction on Roth 401(k) deferrals in favor of tax-free distributions in retirement
  • Deduct a portion of your current income as profit sharing or defined benefit plan funding
  • Create and grow two contribution buckets, tax-deferred and tax-free, to better manage your tax liabilities as you take withdrawals in retirement

When was the last time you made changes to your 401(k) program? Are you thinking about the following issues:1

  • Should our plan offer our employees more investment choices?
  • How can we make the plan more user-friendly?
  • Is automatic enrollment a good idea?
  • Is there a cheaper plan out there that might be just as good?
  • Are we satisfying the 404(c) employee education requirements?
  • Are we truly meeting our fiduciary responsibility?
  • What steps could we take to try and reduce liability?
  • How does our 401(k) stack up against others in terms of fund quality, costs, and fees?
  • Is there a way we can monitor and evaluate investment performance?

Now is a great time to evaluate your current plan – or search for a new one. At Riggle Wealth Group, my focus is working with employer sponsored retirement plans, business owners, and individuals on investment management, financial and retirement incoming planning. Together, we'll talk through your company's goals, objectives, and workforce so I can help fine-tune your current 401(k) plan or identify a replacement.
