Employee Benefit Plans

Our Employee Benefit Plan team provides timely, knowledgeable insights to help mitigate risks while also adhering to DOL audit regulations.

The Department of Labor (DOL) Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) regulations require an annual audit of certain employee benefit plans. The audit report is then filed with Form 5500 and submitted to the DOL.

Employee Benefit Plan audits have become increasingly complex due to changing regulations and financial reporting requirements. Your Employee Benefit Plan needs an audit team that has a thorough understanding of these filing requirements and complexities.

The BSB Employee Benefit Plan team is that team.
