Services for Financial Professionals

Accountant RetirementThe Retirement Essentials team is highly trained in the area of retirement plan Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and Department of Labor (DOL) compliance issues.  Since regulations change so often, it can be time consuming and expensive for your firm to maintain a staff with competence in this area.  This is where our team can be an invaluable resource.

We are third party retirement plan administrators (TPA’s), and are independent of investment advisory services.  Therefore, our services can perfectly complement your business.

We work with financial professionals to coordinate the best possible, and most cost effective, approach to retirement plan services for your clients.  We are extremely flexible and can tailor our services to accommodate your specific needs.

We are available to contract directly with you and serve as your back office and “invisible” record keeper, or, if you prefer, we can work directly with your clients.

Retirement Essentials provides all required ERISA disclosures, as well as a Plan Administration Kit, which contains the plan’s pertinent documents.

Our services include:

  • required valuations and record keeping
  • compliance testing
  • contribution calculations
  • government reporting
  • IRS approved documents
  • pertinent news and information concerning retirement plans

We are currently approved as a preferred TPA provider under the following daily platforms:

  • American Funds

  • Great West
  • Aspire (formerly 401kasp)
