A Different Kind Of Retirement Solution

Welcome to a dramatically lower cost pooled employer retirement solution

The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents has done extensive due diligence to find a retirement solution that saves members money, reduces their fiduciary risk, and outsources more than 90% of their duties. Introducing The PIA 401K  powered by Target Retirement Solutions, TAG Resources, Transamerica, and Fiduciary Plus.

Who is The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents?

The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents or PIA is the premier association for professional independent insurance agents; PIA has provided excellence to its members for 90 years. PIA has members in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, District of Columbia, and Guam. Through the strength of PIA affiliates, we are able to advance the independent agency system from coast-to-coast.


What do your administrative duties look like with and without this new solution?

Many employers are unaware of the actual list of responsibilities that befall them when they take on their own retirement plan.

TAG performs over 90% of administrative duties.

A better fit for you and your employees

Less risk for you also means more security for the employees you manage. This can lead to better and more qualified employees.

Cost Effective

Pooling hundreds of company retirement plans together provides scale that allows The PIA 401K to provide members with lower cost even with expanded services.

Outsource Administration

Over 90% of your administrative tasks will be handled through the outsourcing administrative duties to retirement professionals.

Outsource Liability

Simply failing to file a 5500 tax form on time can cost as much as $2,140 Dollars PER DAY! Plans administered through the Retirement Plan Exchange are designed to meet IRS and DOL regulations.
