What Makes an LPL Retirement Plan Advisor Different?

The one and only focus of LPL retirement plan advisors is to provide your plan with the tools, training, and dedicated support needed to build high-quality solutions for your organization and its employees.

Independent: An LPL retirement plan advisor is an autonomous professional, focused on addressing the unique needs of your plan. He or she has access to turnkey reporting capabilities for plan features’ comparability and fee transparency under ERISA section 408(b)(2).

Highly Trained: Regular LPL conferences, webinars, and education help ensure that your advisor is well-versed in the intricacies of plan regulation and administration, along with having specialized knowledge of ERISA and Department of Labor rules.

Committed to Plan Sponsor’s Success: An LPL retirement plan advisor seeks to help you make better decisions and optimize your plan design and investment options. Services designed specifically for the needs of plan sponsors include fiduciary-level investment monitoring, expedited investment policy statement (IPS) preparation assistance, education services geared toward plan committees, and management of vendor relationships.

Committed to Your Employees’ Success: An LPL retirement plan advisor is fully dedicated to improving retirement readiness for your employees while they are in-plan, preparing to retire, and after they have left the plan.
