401 (k) Provided By Our Agency

A 401(k) plan is a widely recognized retirement savings option offered by employers across the United States, including here in Arkansas. These plans have been helping employees and employers alike for nearly four decades, providing a versatile and tax-advantageous method to save for retirement.

Payroll deduction coverage

Risk Factors

Americans are 15 times more likely to save for retirement if they have access to a payroll deduction savings plan like a 401(k) at their job. This finding is hardly surprising when you consider the convenience of payroll deduction.


401 K is a good option. Employee contributions are automatically deducted from each participant’s paycheck based on their salary deferral election, which is usually based on a % of compensation.

Portability coverage

Risk Factors

An employee may constantly worry about the benefits of changing his job/employer.


When workers leave their employer, they are usually entitled to a distribution of their 401(k) account immediately. They can roll this distribution to a new employer’s 401(k) plan or a personal IRA.

Recruitment & retention copies

Risk Factors

Retirement benefits are becoming increasingly important to employees. A recent study found that two-thirds (68%) of workers said a retirement plan was a critical factor in deciding whether or not to accept a job, while 62% said a plan was a critical factor in staying with a job.


This plan can be a great benefit. A 401(k) plan can be a powerful tool for employers to attract and retain employee talent.

Tax deductions coverage

Risk Factors

Businesses are always concerned about how much tax they should pay.


All businesses can claim a tax credit deduction for paying 401(k) plan-related expenses, including Employer contributions & administration fees.

Incentivizing performance coverage

Risk Factors

A profit-sharing contribution can be allocated among 401(k) plan participants using dramatically different formulas.


This allows an employer to allocate multiple contribution rates to different employee groups – or even a different rate to each employee. Employers often use this flexibility to administer larger contribution rates to business owners or other Highly Compensated Employees (HCEs). Still, it can also be used to reward employees for high performance.

Understanding the 401(k) and Its Mechanisms

A 401(k) is an investment strategy for retirement that allows employees to set aside a percentage of their pay into a specific retirement account. These contributions are typically pre-tax, i.e., taxes are only due when money is withdrawn, which is often done in retirement. The contributions are invested in a variety of financial instruments such as mutual funds, stocks, bonds, money market funds, and savings accounts. This diversified portfolio aims to help grow your retirement savings over time.

The Advantages of a 401(k) Plan

Employers in Arkansas offer 401(k) plans in order to attract and retain top talent. These plans appeal to employees as they provide an effortless and cost-efficient way to save for the future, with the added benefit of tax-deferred contributions. Moreover, employers also benefit from tax deductions on their contributions to employees' 401(k) accounts.

Benefits of contributing to a 401(k):

  • Building a retirement nest egg.
  • Tax savings from pre-tax contributions.
  • Tax-free growth on investments until withdrawal.
  • A range of investment choices to suit different risk appetites.

Cost Considerations for 401(k) Plans

Employers in Arkansas need to cover the upfront costs, including setup and administration fees. Additionally, it's crucial to consider the fees charged to employees, as high fees can deter participation and impact overall satisfaction with the plan. As an employer, ensuring that these fees are reasonable is part of your fiduciary duty, with potential penalties for non-compliance.

Offering a 401(k) plan ranks among the top five benefits for employee satisfaction. By providing this benefit, you demonstrate a commitment to your employees' financial well-being, which can help attract new talent and retain existing employees, ultimately contributing to your business's long-term success.
