Creating Successful Retirement

How do you put your employees on track for a successful retirement?  By creating The Hero’s Ideal 401(k) and transforming your current retirement plan into a Paycheck Manufacturing Plant.  The Hero’s Ideal 401(k) provides a win-win-win solution for your company, your management team, and your employees.

Our team can show you – the employer and sponsors of the 401(k) retirement plan – how to educate, activate and influence your employees to save enough money to achieve a successful retirement experience.

The Five Step Process

We are the Inland Northwest’s 401(k) experts.  Our clients see significant advantages in working with us using our five step process:

  1. Leading Employee Success: Every employee is trained on transforming their 401(k) into a “Paycheck for Life”, and receives an individualized annual report showing their current ability to retire successfully.
  2. Optimizing Plan Design: Significant enhancements can be made to the plan to improve the retirement outcome for owners and employees without increasing administration costs.
  3. Forging a Fiduciary Shield: We establish a proven compliance system and sign as co-fiduciaries with you in all our plans.
  4. Best-in-class investments: Our quarterly investment benchmarking, research, and open architecture create the opportunity for achieving best-in-class performance, volatility and cost.
  5. Controlling Fees and Expenses: We regularly benchmark the plan to satisfy your fiduciary obligation to ensure fees and expenses are reasonable.
