Is your retirement plan legally sound and high quality?
Your employees count on you to provide them with a retirement plan that offers high quality investments, pays only reasonable fees and is in compliance with all the ERISA and DOL regulations. The plan sponsor wants to take all available measures to manage liability. How do you know if you have reached this goal?
The Retirement Plan X-Ray
To help identify what needs to be done next, BCM has developed an independent fiduciary-based review process– the Retirement Plan X-Ray. This service is much more than a survey; it is the beginning of an ongoing process. First, a set of questions is answered about your plan operations. Then a copy of your investment menu and balances as well as your investment policy statement are submitted for review.

Plan sponsors are tasked with plan operations that comply with the ever changing regulation and the fear of growing litigation. Creating and managing a top quality plan that also limits liability starts with a specific process.
