  • Review or conduct annual combined plan testing for combo clients.
  • Review benefit calculations and distribution paperwork.
  • Prepare or review Form 5500 and collaborate with plan sponsors to ensure timely filing.
  • For DB plans, prepare annual PBGC premium filings and assist with termination filings.
  • Assist auditors in case of an annual plan audit.
  • Collaborate with IRS, DOL, and PBGC auditors under the Compliance Team's guidance when necessary.
  • Ensure a smooth takeover process for new clients, coordinating with internal and external stakeholders to match prior valuations.
  • If applicable, work with Enrolled Actuary or independently oversee activities for timely and accurate completion of a substantial client portfolio.
  • Reconcile plan assets by working with Recordkeeper data in various formats and systems.
  • Perform annual compliance testing for assigned clients (e.g., 402(g), 415(c), 410(b), ADP/ACP, Plan Limits, Top Heavy, etc.).
  • Prepare and file IRS Forms (5500 series, 5330, 1099R, and related schedules).
  • Calculate employer plan contributions using various allocation methods.
  • Support retirement plan implementation, conversion, de-conversion, and termination processes.
  • Continuously seek process and service improvements, while maintaining client and plan data in line with administrative electronic protocols.
  • Safeguard confidential data, ensuring its protection, security, and proper handling to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure.
