Fiduciary Peach of MindTM
A Retirement Plan Outsourcing Service
We know the rules. We know who must get which required plan notices and when. Our Fiduciary Peace of Mind service delivers the notices and with processes in place to deal with returned and undeliverable mail. And, if the DOL ever asks about participant communications in an audit, we’ll be there to answer for you.
Not everyone in your plan is necessarily required to get every notice. Some notices only need to go to active participants. Some notices, such as Summaries of Material Modifications, only need to go to the affected participants. We use records from your payroll system and plan recordkeeping system to determine who must receive which notices.
We mail notice packages to participants’ homes using addresses in your payroll system. Our commercial printing partner compares those addresses to the US Postal Service database to determine if any participant has updated their address with the post office, but not with you, their employer.
Note: If we can meet the Department of Labor and Internal Revenue Service rules for emailing, we email notice packages instead.
