Uncovering hidden and confusing fees - many employers don’t know all the fees their employees pay inside their retirement accounts. Excessive fees can add up to tens of thousands of dollars for a single employee over their career. These fees can also create significant liability for employers and plan fiduciaries. Learn how to find and lower hidden fees within your retirement plan, keeping more of your employee's retirement dollars in their accounts and reducing fiduciary risk for you and your organization.
