Gratke Wealth will be presenting at HR.com February 25-26 2013 Virtual ConferenceBenefits: Cost Containment, Audits and Legal Risks


The retirement plan landscape is changing quickly and much of that change is taking place in 2013. Join us in a discussion on best practices for retirement plans for small-mid size businesses to learn what is required to start and succeed at creating a retirement plan. Learn about staff time commitments, costs involved in starting a plan and keeping it going; who pays for the plan expenses, what parties are involved in retirement plans, and what their duties are. We will discuss successful plan design concepts, and what it takes to create successful outcomes for your employees participating in the plan in addition to the 2012 401(k) fee disclosure changes affecting both employers and employees. As more and more businesses look at 401ks as a competitive benefit, knowledge of basic concepts and terminologies in the 401k retirement plan landscape is need-to-know information that we’ll walk through. We will also discuss investor behavior, how it often works against the well-intentions of investors, and how to create processes, and best practices, to mitigate poor investment decisions due to emotional behavior.

Half of Americans do have access to a retirement savings plan at their workplace. For those that do, about one-third fail to join. And for those that do join tend to save too little and often make unwise investment decisions. The 401(k) arena is in crisis, and workers need sound guidance and help. This webinar will help employers who have yet to set up a retirement plan learn the steps to do so to include commitments to time, costs and associated risks.

Gratke Wealth, LLC is a member of the Retirement Plan Advisory Group, Inc. the largest retirement plan advisory group in the nation with over 25,000 plans and $100 Billion under management.
