Inordinate plan costs can result in liability issues, disgruntled employees and reduced retirement benefits for both employees and plan sponsors. As a 401(k) Plan Sponsor, when is the last time that you benchmarked your 401(k) fees? Are your fees appropriate for the size of your plan and the level of service that you are receiving? Do you know what your total all-in plans costs truly are?
- Do you quantify on an annual basis:
- Administration costs
- Recording-keeping costs
- Custodial costs
- Investment advisory costs
- Plan investment costs
If you are unaware of any of the above related costs, allow Rosemeyer Management Group to provide you with a free fee analysis of your plan.

Cash Balance Plan
Often times we encounter retirement plan sponsors who either want to defer more into their retirement plans or who could be getting more out of their current retirement plan.
Enter Cash Balance Plans:
A Cash Balance Plan, is a type of retirement plan that belongs to the same general class of plans known as “Qualified Plans.” A 401(k) is a qualified plan. These plans “qualify” for tax deferral and creditor preferred treatment under ERISA.
In a Cash Balance Plan each participant has an account. The account grows annually in two ways: first, as a contribution and second, an interest credit, which is guaranteed rather than being dependent on the plan’s investment performance. Any guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of the insurance company.
Many owners and partners are looking for larger tax deductions and accelerated retirement savings. Cash Balance Plans may be the perfect solution for them. The 2006 Pension Protection Act (PPA) and the Cash Balance regulations issued in 2010 and 2014 have made these plans even more flexible and easier to administer, making them an increasingly popular choice for successful business owners.
Cash Balance Plans are more complex than most traditional employer sponsored retirement plans. However, they can provide significant benefits to both the employer and the employee when used in the right situations.
