401K information

You can love your 401(k).

We challenge you

to find a 401(k) on the market that is easier, more compliant, or safer.

Full stop.

Many employers have concerns about having a 401(k).


  • They’re time-consuming to administer: too much work has to be done by the person or people who have the retirement plan responsibility.
  • They’re difficult to keep in compliance: The EBSA reported in FY 2015 67.3% of company’s 401(k)s that are audited by the Department of Labor fail the audit, resulting in average fines of $285,000. This has culminated in a cost of $5.6B over the last 4 years.
  • They can carry huge liability exposure. Most people don’t even understand the risk they are accepting when offering a retirement plan – but anyone who understands the risk doesn’t want it!
  • They can be expensive for the companies offering them.
  • There are a lot of providers – how do you know you are getting the best?

These are all valid concerns—but the fact is this:

A 401(k) may be the biggest hiring and retention feature a company can employ.

So how do you overcome all these concerns and take advantage of all the hiring and retention benefits?

The responsibility of a 401(k) should never be undersold.

This is not a scare tactic, it’s a fact! 67.2% of company’s 401(k)s that are audited by the Department of Labor fail the audit. Since the DOL’s concern for retirement plans, above all else, is that the plan is being run for the benefit of the employees, any failings in plan administration can end up being an extremely costly problem.

Most 401(k)s place the Fiduciary Responsibility, and by extension, risk, solely on the Plan Sponsor — meaning YOU!

Many providers in the retirement plan market say they offer “Fiduciary Liability Protection” in their marketing material, but in a court of law, they flatly refuse any liability. CorpStat, in the course of plan administration, is listed as the Named Fiduciary on your plan – meaning that with the CorpStrat Program, you are protected to the highest degree in the industry.

Lower Plan Cost

CorpStrat’s Plans are built on an “aggregated” model. This model combines multiple employer’s 401(k)s together under a single “End to End” retirement program. Every employer in the plan benefits from this aggregation in the form of enhanced services and lowered costs. Employers receive services that most providers don’t offer – and because the services are being offered to many at once, CorpStrat’s plan costs are the same or lower than those providers.

No Fines or Penalties

Because we keep your plan consistently compliant, you will not be subject to fines and penalties resulting from IRS and DOL audits.

Liability Protection

Due to our industry-leading 3(16) fiduciary liability protection, your risk of loss of personal wealth resulting from fiduciary liability action is greatly reduced.

Lower Staff Costs

Because CorpStrat fulfills 99% of plan administration duties, you don’t need to have the cost of an employee or department focused on retirement plan administration. Your employees can stay focused on moving your business forward.
