The Core Benefits 

Reduced Risk

If you administer your own retirement solution you are personally liable for the plan. The new solution takes on the fiduciary risk.

Administrative Duites

The list of duties that accompanies administering your own solution is long and tedious. TAG resources remove over 90% of those administrative duties.


This solution gives you time back to focus on your business. Your employees can focus on building your business. Not administering your retirement plan.


Having a retirement solution administered by professionals can help attract new talent and help retain your top employees.
