About America’s Best 401k

Our Mission

We are disruptors.  We remember what most plan providers have seemingly forgotten.   That the money in 401k plans is the possession of real people.  People with families.  Families that deserve to have the benefits of the money they have had the discipline to sock away.    In a sense, we are freedom fighters.  Freedom from expensive 401k plans and underperforming investment options.

Our Services

We’ve assembled a team of world-class retirement plan design, administration, recordkeeping, and actuarial experts to deliver an offering entirely unique to the marketplace which is currently dominated by national payroll companies, insurance companies and wall street brokerage firms.

For business owners, who have a fiduciary obligation to their employees to provide a plan in the employees’ best interests, we install a 3rd party professional fiduciary (also known as a 3(38) investment manager) to help alleviate liability AND provide objective investment solutions designed to meet a variety of individual risk tolerance profiles. We have expertise in the following plan types/services:

 

  • 401(k) plans (existing and start up plans)
  • 403(b) plans
  • Defined Benefit Plans
  • Cash Balance Plans
  • Profit Sharing
  • Payroll Services
