A retirement plan is among the most valuable employee benefits offered by an employer. A retirement plan can increase your company's attractiveness and help improve satisfaction, productivity, and retention with existing employees. B&P Retirement Solutions is committed to providing trustees and plan sponsors with effective strategies necessary to maintain a highly successful retirement plan. We help our clients implement plans that pave the way for participants to retire with dignity and confidence.

We review the funds and fees with the trustees of the plan often so the investment line up is always performing at or above their respective benchmark.
2) Risk Management - Our team is focused on reducing fiduciary liability to plan sponsors/trustees.

These fiduciary responsibilities include safe harbor notifications, timeliness of plan contributions, importance of having an appropriate QDIA, following what is set forth in the plan document, and much more.
