Typical fee structures use a flat base fee, charge per individual participant, and often have hidden fees or asset charges that add on to the price tag! While MVPkPlan℠ also uses a flat base fee model, the base fee is based upon per every 25 participants vs. each individual participant. Our fees are also monthly based instead of quarterly, helping you better plan for recurring expenses.
Our fees are based on the work we do for you, not the assets you invest - keeping your costs as low as possible.
Traditional fee structures for 401(k) plans involve collecting or charging annual fees based on your assets. With the MVPkPlan℠, your assets remain entirely yours; we simply bill for the services provided, not an asset based fee for administration services.
We can do this because of the structure of MVPkPlan℠ and the structure of the processes. Having this structure in place is what we feel is best for the overall operation of your plan and is how we can keep costs low!
