The 401(k) arena is changing fast, with new fiduciary regulations in force, continued focus on plan fees, and participant retirement readiness all taking center stage. This is your opportunity to increase your expertise in areas such as retirement plan design, operations, comprehension of fiduciary obligations, and improving outcomes.

Featured Presenters (click to view session description):

Rehires Through the Revolving Door: The retirement plan rules related to rehires are quite different than those that apply to other areas of employment and benefits. Whether rehiring a former employee is a rare occurrence or part of your regular course of business, it is important to understand how these rules work.

Finding the Right Fit & Measuring Plan Success: The choice of using a bundled or unbundled provider is about finding the right fit. The choice should be based on the Plan Sponsor’s needs. A critical component to the evaluation requires peeling back the layers of the onion to identify all aspects of the plan. You will gain insight into this process and will be provided a “Hands On” customized benchmarking report of your plan compared to over 1,000 US plan sponsors at your request. The report will be provided to you at no cost or obligation.

Retirement Plan Design: This will cover eligibility, compensation, contributions, vesting and distribution issues and options.

Comfort, Cost and Quality – Why More Plans are Turning to Risk-Managed Models over Individual Funds and Target Date Strategies: Recent studies find that, on average, managed-account participants tend to save and earn more than those in target-date and individual funds. A growing number of employers are starting to look beyond these one-size-fits-all investments and automatically enroll participants in managed accounts that pair algorithm-driven advice with human helpers.

Influencing Factors on Participant Retirement Success: The impact of successful workplace financial education and providing direct participant advisory services generally results in participants who are less stressed and better prepared for retirement.

Risk Management Strategies for the Fiduciary: Understanding the fiduciary responsibility that goes with being a plan sponsor, and the liability both personal and professional. How the use of a full 3(38) fiduciary advisor shifts much of that liability to the advisor.

DOL Retirement Plan Investigations and Enforcement Initiatives: This presentation focuses on areas of plan management the DOL is currently scrutinizing and what you can to do keep your retirement plan safely in compliance.
