401k education

What if you don't improve your 401(k)?

Are you so busy doing your job that you haven't had time to review your 401(k) Plan?
Maybe you think your current broker is "taking care of it"?
Here are the risks of waiting:

  • DOL Fines – You could face fines if your plan is out of compliance. As the Fiduciary for the retirement plan, you’re liable.
  • Litigation – Lawyers now specialize in 401(k) lawsuits. Defending those suits can be very costly plus a possible settlement as well.
  • Your Employees – Excess fees drag down account balances and can leave your employees without enough money to pay their bills in retirement.

* We always operate in a Fiduciary capacity to help you manage the risks in your retirement plan.

We’ll closely monitor your 401k plan, investment options,  and fees to help save you valuable time and money.

Not just 401(k)... Defined Benefit, Deferred Comp, Cash Balance and more!

Sometimes our clients offer 2 or 3 different plans to fit the needs of the company and the employees. That’s all part of our comprehensive analysis upfront. Our job is to educate you with options so you can make the best decision for your company.

401(k) Advisor and Founder

Erick Arndt

I founded Retirement Partners of California because I saw companies like yours getting bad advice, little fiduciary guidance and very poor or no advice for their employees.

It was time to find a team of experienced retirement plan professionals to help companies and their employees. Beyond experience we also needed a team that can listen to clients and then effectively communicate the advice that can help them.

Our Plan: Educate plan sponsors about their current plan and then offer them a “clear path forward” towards the goals. Many had worked with their current broker or advisor for years so they were hesitant to believe their retirement plan was performing poorly, they were overpaying their fees, and were exposed to so much fiduciary liability. We explained ERISA and what was expected of them by the Department of Labor as explained in their publication “Meeting Your Fiduciary Liabilities“. That helped them see the light. Now they are some of my best referral sources for new business.

I have seen firsthand the negative impact on employees and companies so this has become more than a business… this is our passion. Welcome to Retirement Partners of California!
