    Our goal is to keep your plan working well for you and your business and in compliance with all IRS regulations. These services are provided for plan sponsors, participants and their advisors ongoing:

    • Every business owner and Financial Advisor will have a dedicated plan consultant who is familiar with the  plan and the business situation. The consultant will inform clients and their advisors of issues that affect the plan and provide periodic updates once the plan is established.
    • Both advisor and client will be informed of legal changes regarding plans
    • We will work with you throughout the year to gather up-to- date information, answer your questions, run contribution scenarios, and consult on changing your plan to fit your needs.
    • IRS Form 5500 will be completed, as required each year.
    • Annual contributions will be calculated and communicated.
    • We will prepare other forms as needed – participant distributions, loans, and hardship distributions
  • Closing a Plan

    Business owners may decide to terminate their plans due to a change in the business financial situation, upon sale of the business or at retirement, or because the plan has been fully funded.

    • The termination process begins with a conversation between client and their consultant. Depending on the situation and time of year, the consultant might recommend another course of action such as amending or freezing the plan.
    • Once the course of action has been agreed to and the client has submitted a request in writing, Dedicated DB will calculate the final contributions if any, and assets to be distributed.
    • In most cases, plan assets will be rolled into an IRA where they continue to grow tax deferred until withdrawn.
