Apex Benefits 401(k)


A 401(k) plan allows your employees to participate in a company retirement fund. Does your plan allow your employees to put money in on a pre-tax or an after-tax basis? Does your plan require key employees to restrict their contributions or get refunds at the end of the year? APEX will design a plan to fit your company’s needs.
