401k Audits: Take care of your business as you take care of your employees.

Making sure your employee benefit plan meets all of the Department of Labor (DOL) and Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) requirements is a key responsibility for most businesses filling out form 5500. A 401k audit of the plan can ensure this is the case, and if your company has over 100 employees, the DOL mandates that you undergo an employee benefit plan audit each year.

During a 401k audit, our team determines if the plan assets are fairly valued, if plan obligations are properly stated, if contributions were received in a timely manner, and if plan payments followed the terms. At the conclusion of the audit, DHJJ issues a report that includes suggestions on how to improve internal controls and operations.
