We provide ongoing support for all aspects of benefits administration, including distributions, loans, withdrawals, option exercises, investment changes, plan participant communications, claims and inquiries, and all issues and matters relating to plan providers.

We can help you maintain compliance with federal tax laws, ERISA, securities laws and state laws; give advice on the impact of laws and regulations governing employee benefits, including ERISA, tax laws, COBRA, HIPAA, ADA, ADEA, FMLA, Sarbanes-Oxley, WARN Act, and other federal and state rules; and develop procedures and practices in satisfaction of fiduciary duties.
