Safe Harbor IRA

Employees change jobs more frequently than ever before.

This trend results in an increasing number of employees who leave their savings behind for you to administer when they leave your company. The balances they leave behind contribute to annual administrative costs—and they place the burden of locating former employees on staff that should be focused on current employees who are building value to the company.
