SBAM PEP Year-End Planning Information

As a plan sponsor of the SBAM Pooled Employer Retirement Plan, we want to make sure that our partners help guide you through the year-end data collection process.

  • Preparation for key communications that you will receive related to your 401(k) plan
  • Established expectations for the timing of plan testing and profit sharing (if applicable)
  • Provided a market and investment plan menu update
  • Reminders of key deadlines for year-end data collection
