Compliance Oversight

PSA understands that compliance with both regulatory changes and recent industry trends is not just important, but mandatory, for retirement plan success.

The partnership between PSA’s Fiduciary Consulting Group and The PFE Group brings together leading specialties and processes in retirement planning along with greater resources and keen industry insight — all to help deliver exceptional client services and experiences.

PSA has developed a “Fiduciary Scorecard” in order to assess your plan compliance needs. We will help evaluate your current plan operations such as governance, 404(c) compliance, notice distribution and plan administration. PSA will partner with you to address those areas in need and ensure that your retirement plan’s fiduciary requirements are in compliance and stay in compliance.

PSA understands that compliance with both regulatory changes and recent industry trends is not just important, but mandatory, for retirement plan success. For example, with the U.S. Department of Labor’s 2012 release of its final regulations regarding 401(k) fee disclosure, PSA’s team can not only help ensure your organization is in compliance with these rules but also help with the participant education factor. We see 401(k) fee disclosure as an opportunity to be proactive and pro-participant. To learn more about 401(k) fee disclosure, check out this blog post, “New Retirement Plan Fee Disclosure Rules – Y2K All Over Again?” by the Fiduciary Consulting Group @ PSA.

For many of our clients, we work with the plan’s Investment Committee, human resource staff, and ERISA counsel to ensure the plan is updated and operating according to the mandated plan rules and regulations. Our consultants’ understanding of ERISA and non-ERISA plans and their compliance needs are an integral part of our consulting expertise.
