At Six8 Advisors we routinely meet with small to mid-sized businesses to discuss their 401k plan.  While some employers do a great job, we often hear similar stories as to why employers are not managing their 401k. 

Here are some of our favorites… 

  • “Out of sight, out of mind” -  I can’t remember the last time we looked at our 401k plan and I am not concerned about it.
  • “Not my job” - I am sure my plan provider takes care of everything.  My plan is ok or they would have told me so.
  •  “No complaints” - Nobody is complaining about it so it must be ok.
  • “Too time consuming” - I just don’t have time to deal with it. It can wait.
  • “I have no idea” – I know we have a plan, but I really don’t know much about it.

If any of these comments sound familiar it might be time for a 401k review.   Employers are ultimately responsible for everything, including: compliance, investments, administration and advice. 

At Six8 Advisors, we not only focus on retirement plans, we focus on small to mid-sized plans just like yours.   Ask us our about our one-time 401k Check-up or ongoing Plan Advisory Services.
