Benefits of a Multiple Employer Plan (MEP)

Offering your members access to a 401(k) plan can be an important tool in the recruitment and retention of talented employees, and it’s never been easier to offer this benefit.

Joining a Multiple Employer Plan (MEP) is a great way to reduce the costs and administrative burden of offering a 401(k) plan, allowing your members to stay focused on what they do best—running their business.

How your members benefit from an MEP

For your business-owner members, an MEP offers “strength in numbers.” By pulling together, your members can enjoy benefits that might not be available or affordable individually. An MEP:

  • May help save time by significantly reducing your members’ work loan and responsibilities
  • May help offer fiduciary protection by significantly reducing your members’ fiduciary risk
  • May help improve your members’ plan by aggregating crucial services at a competitive price
