Employee benefit plan design services

Our turnkey plan design gives growing businesses of every shape and size confidence, clarity and a clear path to delivering benefits for employees and business owners. Wipfli’s employee benefit specialists provide plan documents to implement any plan design:

  • 401(k) profit sharing plans
  • Money purchase pension plans
  • Defined benefit plans, including cash balance
  • Code Section 457 plans for tax-exempt employers

You can also integrate your 401(k) benefits with payroll, which increases compliance and saves time by helping you:

  • View employee changes in one centralized place
  • Spend less time gathering year-end census information
  • Avoid potential, costly repercussions from untimely and inaccurate reporting
