A 3(38) retirement program is a great choice

Managing a retirement plan takes time, effort and most importantly, knowledge about plan administration, compliance and investment management. If you are your company's retirement plan sponsor, your legal responsibility is to ensure your company's plan and its investments are managed under the ERISA "prudent expert rule." However, if you fail to comply with the complex myriad of fiduciary rules, you may be personally liable due to breach of fiduciary responsibility. This is why many plan sponsors seek professional help.

With our 3(38) retirement program, you are able to delegate full discretion over the plan's investments to the experts at Hooker & Holcombe. This aspect helps to reduce your exposure to fiduciary liability and allows you to spend more time growing your business.

Our new 3(38) retirement program can help save you time and money, too.

Now we can help you meet your fiduciary responsibilities quickly, easily and cost-effectively - all while giving your participants exceptional service and online tools.

The program is fully managed by the experts at Hooker & Holcombe and includes plan administration, compliance, recordkeeping, investments and reporting. We'll also manage open-enrollment and communication with your employees, making our 3(38) retirement program a seamless transition for everyone involved.
