A Retirement Plan Compliance Assistance Seminar for Small Business

Strong fiduciary oversight and protecting workers' benefits is one of the highest priorities of the U.S. Department of Labor. The best way to protect workers' benefits is by preventing problems before they start. Our compliance assistance program - Getting It Right - Know Your Fiduciary Responsibilities - will increase awareness and understanding about basic fiduciary responsibilities when operating a retirement plan. Getting it right, however, can be challenging. This is especially true for small and medium sized employers who have limited time, resources, and access to professional help with benefit programs.
