Customized Plan Design


Customized Plan Design

Plan design is complex. Getting it right can mean the difference between strengthening your clients’ corporate goals and uplifting participants, or creating added and unnecessary risk.

FuturePlan has the experience and depth to do a careful analysis of the path clients want to chart, and design a plan that integrates often-overlooked elements like corporate vision, company profitability, and scarcity of a suitable workforce.

Breadth of experience

FuturePlan has the ability to meet unique needs with advanced plan design alternatives. We perform in-depth analysis to recommend which plan type will best suit a business and look at a variety of factors, including:

  • Would adopting a cross-tested or age-weighted plan align best with goals?
  • Is a profit sharing only plan, or a profit sharing with 401(k) plan more appropriate?
  • Do employee demographics support the addition of an automatic enrollment feature, a safe harbor plan, or some other type of plan?
