Retirement Distribution Processing
Distributing retirement plan assets can be a time-consuming and costly process. PenChecks can lighten your administrative workload with a complete menu of innovative retirement plan distribution services that save time, reduce risk, and lower operating costs.
Automatic Rollover (Default) IRAs
Automatic rollover (Default) IRAs provide a safe, cost-effective tool for managing plan assets for participants who have gone missing or fail to respond to benefit election requests. PenChecks rollover IRAs help you avoid unnecessary retirement plan administration expenses while reducing your fiduciary exposure.
Uncashed retirement plan checks can require significant time and expense to resolve while posing financial risk to your business and plan fiduciaries. PenChecks uncashed check solutions eliminate these outstanding liabilities, helping you save time, reduce risk, and enjoy peace of mind.
