Risk & Responsibility

Being a fiduciary for your Company’s benefit plan comes with a unique responsibility.  In that role, you are entrusted to make sure you are getting value from your required benefit plan audit, and that you understand the key regulations of the IRS and Department of Labor to ensure your plan's compliance.  A quality audit will help protect the assets and the financial integrity of your employee benefit accounts and enable you to carry out your fiduciary responsibility by filing complete and accurate reports and returns.

  • We understand the risk and your unique fiduciary responsibility.
  • Our employee benefit plan audit team covers issues scrutinized by the Department of Labor (DOL) and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA).
  • We have developed a team of dedicated professionals with extensive experience in the complexities of financial reporting and auditing requirements of all types of employee benefit plans.
