    • You’ll be regaled with missing participant tales – it will be an emotional whirlwind that will make you laugh and cry.
    • Finally, we’ll even tell you how to grow your business with missing participants.
    • And, from the DOL perspective:

      2. What to expect from an investigation of a 401k plan
      3. Specific Issues that arise with terminated 401k plans

Most important from a customer service standpoint, Spiro will continue to ensure that PenChecks maintains its current commitment to delivering customized solutions and fast, personalized service.
