We can help you with your existing company retirement plan

Do you know how much fiduciary liability exposure you have with your current plan?
Does your current plan give you the maximum tax deduction allowed?
Is your current retirement plan based on the outdated “revenue sharing” model? 
When reviewing an existing plan, the following are of the utmost importance:
  • Cost– total cost of the plan
  • Compensation– who is getting paid what
  • Competitiveness– how the fees you are currently paying compare to what’s available
  • Services offered– define and evaluate
  • Investment Performance– fund line-up matters

If we can’t improve your plan, we won’t waste your time!

Retirement Plan Services for Business

Risk Management

During the discovery process, FIS can identify potential gaps in coverage or opportunities for supplementary risk defense and/or premium reduction.  Furthermore, FIS reviews clients’ business succession plans to verify that the plans meet both personal and estate goals.

Employee Benefits

Employee benefits are wonderful, if and when affordable.  Based on the goals of the business owner(s), FIS can recommend various employer/employee deductions and services that can defer and/or reduce company income taxes.

Group Insurance

A privately-held company can significantly reduce its insurance premiums for employees if it qualifies for a group rate.  Group insurance applies to healthcare, life, dental, disability, long-term care, and other insurances.  FIS can help clients get quotes for the bundling of these services to minimize costs and maximize coverage for their companies.

Review Business Financials

FIS will review the company’s financials and can work with the client’s tax accountant to implement recommended tax strategies and/or a specific retirement plan.

Retirement Plans

One of the major benefits of being self-employed or owning a small business is that an owner(s) can create a customized retirement plan tailored toward his/her retirement goals.   Retirement plans that provide tax breaks to the owner(s) and/or employees that meet certain IRS and ERISA rules are considered “Qualified” plans.  Retirement plans that don’t meet these guidelines are called “Non-Qualified” plans.

FIS can assist business owners in designing optimized retirement plans that can significantly reduce taxes and defer income for future retirement needs.
