These are all valid concerns—but the fact is this:
So how do you overcome all these concerns and take advantage of all the hiring and retention benefits?
401(k)s take a lot of up-keep.
As a result, they take a lot of employee hours, which more often than not costs you as an employer more money. With TAG 401(k) Aggregated Retirement Solution at the helm of your retirement plan, you can stay on top of your business, knowing that the day-to-day responsibilities of your plan are being looked after.
Every 401(k) has to take governmental compliance seriously.
TAG administered plans focus on compliance to help make IRS and DOL audits a breeze. No TAG administered program has ever failed a DOL audit as of 2018.

The responsibility of a 401(k) should be fully explained.
This is not a scare tactic, it's a fact! 67.2% of company's 401(k)s that are audited by the Department of Labor fail the audit. Since the DOL's concern for retirement plans, above all else, is that the plan is being run for the benefit of the employees, any failings in plan administration can end up being an extremely costly problem.
Most 401(k)s place the Fiduciary Responsibility, and by extension, risk, solely on the Plan Sponsor — meaning YOU!
TAG, in the course of plan administration, is listed as the Named Fiduciary on your plan - meaning that with the TAG Program, you are diversifying the risk.
TAG’s Plans are built on an “aggregated” model. This model is a collection of Single Employer 401(k) plans bundled under a single "End to End" retirement program. Every employer in the plan benefits from this aggregation in the form of enhanced services and lowered costs. Employers receive services which reduce risk that many providers don't offer - and because the services are being offered to many at once, TAG's plan costs are the same or lower than those providers.
Due to our 3(16) fiduciary liability protection, your risk of loss of personal wealth resulting from fiduciary liability action is greatly reduced.
Because TAG fulfills 99% of plan administration duties, you don't need to have the cost of an employee or department focused on retirement plan administration. Your employees can stay focused on moving your business forward.
Because we keep your plan consistently compliant, you will greatly mitigate the chance of fines and penalties resulting from IRS and DOL audits.
