Retirement Plan Consulting


Is your company focused on the right things with its retirement plan? Maybe you monitor plan fees and investment returns, but are your employees on track to retire? How much does it cost your company if employees delay retirement because of inadequate retirement savings?

"The retirement landscape is shifting dramatically, making the outlook for retiring Baby Boomers and Generation Xers far less sanguine than for current retirees. 50% of households are 'at risk' of not having enough to maintain their living standards in retirement."

National Retirement Risk Index (NRRI) Center for Retirement Research at Boston College

Our retirement plan consulting team designs outcome-oriented plans for employers. Our advanced analytics can monitor what percent of your employees are on track for successful retirement outcomes. We can share these analytics with employers during retirement plan reviews, so you know exactly how successful your plan is. After all, why would you even have a plan if it doesn't work?


Is a Cash Balance Pension Plan right for me?


Cash Balance Pension Plans are useful for small business owners who need to accumulate a significant amount of retirement savings in a short period of time. If the owners need to accumulate over $50,000 per year, the business has a steady cash flow, and the employer is already providing a 401(k) benefit to its employees, a cash balance plan may be the solution. Spectrum's Cash Balance Pension Plan Calculator makes it easy to assess whether a Cash Balance Pension Plan is right for your business or professional practice.
