What makes Monterey Wealth different from other 401(k) plan specialists?
401(k) Plans Present Unique Exposure to Plan Sponsors & Administrators
- You have accepted fiduciary responsibility for all plan participants (includes current employees and former employees with plan balances)
- According to ERISA, being a fiduciary means you must act in the best interest of plan participants

Your fiduciary liability includes, but is not limited to, the following:
- Excessive fees

How can you reduce your risk?
