Plan Compliance

We have a fundamental understanding of how critical plan compliance is to both the IRS and Department of Labor. That's why we crafted an Annual ERISA Compliance Review that has no industry equal. The report is extremely comprehensive, and we present it in an easy-to-understand format with clear action items. Even better, we typically delivery it to you within just two weeks of receiving your complete and accurate information.

Plan Compliance Services | DWC – The 401(k) Experts
"DWC is top-notch. Their consultants are well informed and responsive, their compliance review process and supporting technology is excellent, and their fixed-fee billing structure is transparent and competitive with 'cookie-cutter' TPA service providers that offer far less service and expertise."

Securing Plan Compliance So You Can Focus On Your Business

Though good at it, we do a lot more in compliance reporting than just provide test results. Immediate action items are noted in a checklist on your cover letter with hyperlinks to more detailed descriptions.

We also include "Looking Ahead" sections that identify observed changes that might impact the plan or your company contribution budget. And we always make suggestions related to operational efficiency.

The final deliverable is more than facts and figures; it's a tool you can use to proactively manage an important part of your benefit strategy.
