New programs for SBAM members in 2022!

January 3, 2022

Employer Pooled Retirement Plan
Pooled Employer Plans (PEPs) solve for what SBAM understands small business owners dislike most about 401(k) programs including the time it takes to find the right program for their employees, the time it takes to properly administer the program and make sure they are meeting their fiduciary obligations and the cost of administrations and compliance. 

Get the same advantages as a much larger business.  A Pooled Plan is designed to increase efficiencies, reduce burdens on employers, manage costs more effectively, and help improve retirement outcomes for the employees. Outsourcing responsibilities can help reduce administrative and fiduciary burden for small businesses by: 

  • Providing added expertise—Small business can rely on professionals with specific knowledge and skills for plan administrative service and investment management. 
  • Helping save time—Business owners can free up valuable time to focus on building their business by delegating plan administration duties. 
  • Reducing risk—Employers can shift most of the risk to designated fiduciaries along with related plan fiduciary tasks. 
  • Reducing costs – In the plans we have quoted, most are saving money due to economies of scale. 

SBAM is taking advantage of the opportunities presented through the SECURE Act and related government guidance to make it easier for small businesses to manage an employer sponsored retirement plan. To learn more visit
