For ERISA health and welfare plans required to file Form 5500, our preparation service is affordable and efficient. Department of Labor penalties for 5500 deficiencies can be costly (up to $2,097 per day of non-compliance per plan).
For plan sponsors or advisors that are unfamiliar with the 5500 requirement or filing process, we take the time to discuss all aspects of 5500 preparation. We have over 5 years of 5500 preparation experience and are experts at navigating the 5500 requirements and preparing 5500 forms compliantly. Partnership opportunities are available for brokers and plan advisors, which includes preferred pricing and direct data collection from insurance carriers in some circumstances.
Substantial penalties can apply to any ERISA plan that fails to file a required 5500 form on time. The Department of Labor’s Delinquent Filer Voluntary Compliance Program (DFVCP) permits a plan to voluntarily file delinquent forms and pay a much smaller penalty than could otherwise be assessed by the Department of Labor. Having assisted numerous clients with DFVCP filings, we have the expertise necessary to prepare delinquent 5500 filings in order to minimize potential penalties and bring the plan into full compliance.
