Keep your business compliant with federal and state requirements

Compliance documents for your business such as Section 125 plans, ERISA Wrap SPD, and more.

Stay up-to-date with your compliance responsibilities

Federal and state guidelines require businesses to obtain and store certain documents.

Well, often times this is not the case, and when businesses do not have the proper documents in place, their subject to fines levied by the IRS and DOL.

Our goal is to ensure compliance for your business, improving your bottom line and reducing your administrative burden.

What Documents We Can Obtain

IRS Section 125 Premium Only Plans allow employers to reduce payroll taxes by allowing employees to pay their portion of health insurance premiums on a pre-tax or tax-free basis rather than on an after-tax basis.  If you take your employee benefit contributions on a pre-tax basis, you must have a Section 125 Plan in place.

The ERISA Wrap Summary Plan Description (SPD) requirement has been around for years. It is the document for communicating plan rights and obligations to participants and beneficiaries of employer-sponsored group health insurance plans.  An employer must prepare an ERISA Wrap SPD plan document to supplement the Certificate of Insurance (benefit booklet). Together, these documents comprise a proper Wrap SPD.
