Expert Guidance for Distributions and Terminating Plans
As a retirement plan sponsor, you’re not in the business of designing retirement plans or managing the complicated distributions that accompany them. So why not rely on the experts to safely steer you through this complex and highly regulated field?
Our certified client service specialists have the knowledge and experience to help you make the right decisions while avoiding costly mistakes – for you and your plan participants. Whether you need to process a single distribution or terminate an entire plan, PenChecks gives pension plan sponsors peace of mind knowing that all your distributions will be handled in an accurate and timely manner.
Tax Payments and Filings
As a retirement plan sponsor, you’re responsible for ensuring that all aspects of a retirement distribution are properly handled. This includes remitting and reporting all tax payments to the federal government and state agencies as required. Failure to do so can result in costly fines and bureaucratic nightmares that can take months to correct.
PenChecks relieves you of these and other administrative burdens by reporting and remitting all required taxes from our trust account. Moreover, we can save you time and money by using our registered trust tax ID number to deal directly with the IRS and Department of Labor on any issues involving irregular accounts or inquiries.
PenChecks can also relieve retirement plan sponsors of the administrative drudgery involved in distributing proper notification and forms to all plan participants. Using state-of-the-art online technologies, we offer the fastest and most efficient delivery of all participant notices, as well as collection of participant benefit election information. For retirement plan sponsors and participants that prefer a more traditional, paper-based solution, we can also mail paper forms, communication via email, and certified mail and express delivery options.
