Simplify Your Life with These Retirement Plan Strategies

Do you ever wish your life, or to-do list, at least, was simpler? I do. In fact, here are just a few things I wish were simpler:

  1. Assembling furniture (looking at YOU, IKEA)
  2. Traveling/getting through TSA security (wait, I need to take my snacks out of my bag?)
  3. Taking care of my dog (why is it impossible to cut her nails?)
  4. Making healthy choices (I love any form of potato and all sweets)
  5. Saving money (wait, my grocery bill last month was HOW much?)

I could go on and on and on, honestly. But, that might be a little…much (and definitely not simple!). SO, moving on. Did you know July 12th is National Simplicity Day? To celebrate, we’ve compiled a short list of retirement plan strategies for simplifying employers’ lives and their retirement plans. Check it out:

Consider a safe harbor plan or QACA.

Polly want a QACA? Let us explain… A safe harbor plan is one of the retirement strategies we recommend. It allows employers to skip non-discrimination testing by satisfying certain requirements. This also applies if an employer establishes a QACA (qualified automatic contribution arrangement), which is a form of automatic enrollment. If employers meet the requirements of adding a QACA to their plan, they can also avoid non-discrimination testing. These tests can be a source of stress and sometimes require costly or time-consuming corrections, so choosing one of these options can definitely simplify an employer’s retirement plan.
