UU Organizations Retirement Plan Updates
March 2018
Humming Along

A tune-up helps to keep a machine running smoothly.

When your team engages the Retirement Plan portion of the free, self-directed Benefits Tune Up Workbook you can keep things on track, especially when changes occur.

  • Planning your budget?
  • Contemplating salary changes?
  • New Treasurer or new employees on the horizon?

Take a moment to ensure that your assumptions about plan provisions, compensation, and even the type of plan are correct.

Because the Plan is an IRS qualified 401(a)/401(k) defined contribution, multiple employer, church retirement plan, it is important to administer the plan properly to avoid complications, past due amounts, and potential legal issues that could arise, particularly if you do not inform employees about the plan and/or fail to remit contributions timely.

Budget and Process Check Up

Like a stitch in time saves nine, your quarterly review of employee benefits pays off in the long run.

A s your team is either preparing the budget   or doing your quarterly review to ensure that all retirement contributions were calculated correctly and sent timely, please remember that you don't have to go it alone. 

Our team is here to assist your team.  Let us know how we can help:

The Employer:


Each employer that offers the Plan is responsible for the Plan's administration. Employees who have questions about the Plan, who want to verify their employer's timely remittance of contributions, or who have questions about their eligibility can make inquiries of their employer. The employer is to provide each employee with a copy of the Employer's Participation Agreement with the Plan, as a springboard to explaining this employee benefit plan.
