PEPs for Financial Advisors


As a financial advisor, your goal is to keep your clients happy. That means identifying the best retirement plan option. And in 2021, that may involve presenting to them the 401K PEP (pooled employer plan) -- a new retirement plan option built especially for small and medium-sized businesses.

The 401K PEP is a great option for small and medium-sized companies because it’s cost effective and efficient. Here's a rundown of the advantages of proposing a 401K PEP company retirement plan for your clients as a financial advisor.

PEPs are Cost Effective and Not Restrictive

PEPs are excellent retirement plans for employers who are interested in either starting plans or switching from existing plans. The PEPs are not restricted by industry, giving companies more retirement options at a lower cost by combining purchasing power. 

401K PEP Company Retirement Plan(s) Reduce Workloads

The major benefit of the GGA 401k PEP is that it can reduce liabilities and workloads. 

It improves outcomes through full 3(38) investment fiduciary protection. Why? Because with a PEP, significant fiduciary responsibility ends up being shifted from the employer who sponsors a 401k to a pooled plan provider (PPP) who sponsors the PEP. 

The other huge benefit: the employer no longer has to deal with the administrative burden of maintaining the plan. The PPP signs the 5500. That means from an operational level, the time and liability are severely reduced.

Clients Are Interested in PEPs

Yet another reason to offer your clients PEPs as a retirement plan option is that many companies today are interested in them. As a financial advisor, you want to be the one to offer it and continue to lead the client relationship long term.
