Retirement Plan Audits
Many Milwaukee and companies across Wisconsin offer a retirement plan to provide employees with an opportunity to build retirement savings over their careers. While an important benefit option and savings tool, there are several regulations from both the IRS and the Department of Labor (DOL) which must be followed. While compliance for small plans (less than 100 employees) is easier to navigate, large plans (more than 100 participants) face far more complex regulations. As outlined in the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) large plan sponsors are required to undergo an annual plan audit. These audits provide assurance to plan management and participants about the financial condition of the plan.
