Compliance Issues​​

In 2020 67% of companies randomly audited by the DOL failed the audit. Resulting in Billions in fines and penalties.

Tag Resources administrative process is designed to meet DOL random audit requirements on a realtime basis.​

Huge Liability

Employers often do not know the liability they take on. Any employer who understands it does not want the risk. We mitigate that risk for you.

As named fiduciary on your plan we mitigate liability risk for you. ​

Overpriced Plans​

Small business owners are sometimes already financially stretched and cannot afford a high priced retirement solution that works. TAG is the answer other companies retirement providers cannot match.

Signature Fiduciary Connect™ is a “pooled” retirement plan, meaning that we pool many company plans to together. This gives our clients some of the lowest prices and the most extensive services in the industry.

Administration​

When offering a retirement plan to your people, you're held to the highest standards under the law.  If you don't have the required expertise in house, you need to hire professionals to help you stay compliant with ERISA in offering the best plan to your employees.

Administration on the plan is done by TAG Resources. TAG Resources employees are all trained on ERISA law and TAG has ERISA lawyers on staff and on retainer.

Department of Labor random audits can be costly for your business!
