Our iron-clad promise: No hidden 401k fees & no 401k asset-based fees & no 401k commissions, ever!

Our Policy Regarding All Asset-Based Fees

Our policy is not to accept any rebates or revenue sharing of fees deducted from our clients' plan assets ... period! Entities that provide 401k plans, including mutual funds managers, fund distributors, asset custodians, asset trustees, investment brokers and advisors, and plan administrators and record-keepers. These entities typically earn at least a portion of their compensation from asset-based fees extracted from plan assets; 401k Easy is an exception from the norm.

401k Easy is an exception to the norm in that we do not earn any compensation, either directly or indirectly, from our clients' 401k plan assets. If rebates are offered, we have the rebates returned to the client. Our published prices, available online for all to see, are the only compensation we collect.

Hidden & excessive 401k fees are causing severe damage and loss for 401k participants

All-inclusive pricing based solely on company size

As you can see above, the 401k Easy annual fee is based solely on the size of the employer, not the plan design options you select for your plan. This flexibility is not industry-standard - particularly regarding investment flexibility. Though we do charge a modest per-incident fee per 401k loan disbursement, distribution, QDRO, compliance test correction or hardship withdrawal.

The 401k Easy set-up fee: A one-time charge

One of the great things about 401k Easy is its adaptability. Our IRS-approved prototype 401k plan includes a host of plan design options, which we detail below, and our online administration and participation systems - your Plan Sponsor Gateway and Plan Participant Gateway - contain further customization flexibility.

The one-time set-up fee charged at your plan's outset pays for all customization. The fee is charged only one time at your plan's outset.
If in subsequent years if you decide you want to alter your plan or system design choice, that's no problem.

The 401k Easy set-up fee is frequently refunded by the government

Under federal regulations, the one-time 401k Easy set-up fee may be refundable in the form of a federal tax credit. New 401k Easy plans qualify to receive this federally-mandated dollar-for-dollar refund, but there are some restrictions, so please consult your tax advisor before signing up for 401k Easy to make sure you qualify.
