YOUR RESPONSIBILITIES WITH The QTR choice pooled solutions ℠
TAKES ON OVER
OF FIDUCIARY RESPONSIBILITIES
An employer who sponsors a retirement plan for their employees has overriding fiduciary responsibility for the plan. This solution allows the employer to outsource that responsibility to the highest degree.
LET US MAKE YOUR JOB EASIER
Improve accuracy, save time and effort
SIMPLIFIED PAYROLL AND RECORDKEEPING
PayStart provides a service for qualifying clients that allows contribution data to be sent directly from the payroll vendor to Transamerica, eliminating the need for the plan sponsor to create and manipulate a separate file. This can help your organization:
THE BEDROCK REPORTING SYSTEM ™
TAG RESOURCES PROPRIETARY SOFTWARE
With data gathered from contribution files from the plan sponsor and recordkeeper, TAG can match employees with specifics provided in the plan document to determine eligibility and verify participant information. In addition, the system captures rate changes, new loans, and hardship withdrawals and monitors contributions and distributions to ensure compliance with plan documents and [401(k)/403(b)] limits. Every step in the process is time-stamped, so the complete data cycle is monitored. The system allows TAG to monitor operational health and catch minor errors before exposing the plan to compliance violations.
The bottom line:
Employers can focus on their business rather than running a retirement plan

The Choice Pooled Solution℠ is not a traditional multiple employer plan (MEP). Unlike a traditional MEP, certain plan qualification and ERISA requirements are applied at the individual plan/participating employer level. Pooled employer plans (PEPs) are a new type of multiple employer plan for which the Department of Labor (DOL) and IRS guidance is still pending in a number of areas. An employer participating in the plan retains certain fiduciary responsibilities, including responsibility for selecting and monitoring the 3(16) plan administrator as well as the Pooled Plan Provider (PPP), for determining the reasonableness of service providers’ fees, and for periodically reviewing the plan as a whole. Among other responsibilities, the PPP acts as the 3(16) plan fiduciary (or delegates another entity to serve in such capacity). Transamerica does not act as a 3(16) plan fiduciary.
The Retirement Plan Exchange®/Group 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.
