Retirement plan providers are currently struggling to deal with pooled structures. Many are enthusiastically working with pooled plans, such as PEP’s, for the first time. TAG Resources and Transamerica have been the innovators in pooled structures for over 20 years. TAG’s experience has helped them understand how to structure the plan to get the best savings and protection available to you. 

TAG & Transamerica have a proven track record of working together to understand employers’ needs and effectively meeting those needs.

Additionally, retirement plans carry significant fiduciary liability and government compliance exposure for employers. The PMA 401(k) Retirement Plan Exchange® outsources the liability and compliance to TAG Resources to the highest extent. While most retirement plans do not offer this level of fiduciary and compliance assistance, TAG works as your retirement department by becoming a Signatory Named Fiduciary on your retirement plan.

Offering a 401(k) and selecting the providers to run the 401(k) plan is a fiduciary decision.

Financial Advisors that offer the [Program Name] [401(k)/403(b)] are in tune with the complexity and liability of running a 401(k) Plan. Advisors that use the TAG Program look to reduce the administration duties and risk to you to the greatest degree possible, and at a cost that is competitive. In addition, many advisors offer services that will help increase participation, help with enrollment meetings, provide investment guidance and education for the plan participants, provide plan reviews on a regular basis, and suggest potential plan-design enhancements.

Results derived from the tool may vary with each use and over time.

The Retirement Plan Exchange® plan solution is not a multiple employer plan (MEP). Unlike a MEP, certain plan qualification and ERISA requirements are applied at the individual plan level. An employer participating in the plan retains certain fiduciary responsibilities, including responsibility for retaining and monitoring the 3(16) plan administrator, for determining the reasonableness of its fees, and for periodically reviewing the plan as a whole. Transamerica does not act as a 3(16) plan fiduciary.
