New Plans

If you are considering implementation of a qualified plan, AIS will provide visual allocation and contribution requirements. If you are considering implementing an “employee contributory only” 401(k) plan, AIS provides a survey so that preliminary testing can be completed. This review reveals whether an employee contributory only plan is feasible based upon cost and projected limits for highly compensated employees.  

The illustration for a new plan includes:

  • Whether plan sponorship is a viable option based on the goals, objectives and financial commitment of the employer.
  • Provide a snapshot of each qualified plan that includes funding requirements, if any, the allocation/accrual for all key and highly compensated employees.
  • A summary of all findings.
