Free Support and Training to Get Your 401k Plan Off the Ground

Your 401k Easy system comes with user-friendly step-by-step instructions for launching your company plan, introducing it to your employees, and completing its management tasks. We also provide a free-access online support center dedicated to 401k plan operation. 

In addition, we offer our plan sponsors FREE one-on-one support and training via telephone during each plan's launch period. Common topics such as Marketing Your 401k Plan to Your Employees, and Signing Up Plan Participants are also covered in our online downloadable literature, but we're here to help if you have any questions or just prefer hearing the information from a friendly, experienced 401k Easy representative.

Continuing Support: The Easy Support Program (ESP)

As mentioned above, our clients receive FREE telephone-based technical support and training in setting up and launching their 401k Easy retirement plan. They also have ongoing FREE access to special websites dedicated to the needs of the employer sponsoring the plan, and a separate website dedicated to the needs of the employees enrolled in the company's 401k(k) plan. These special websites are part of what we call the Easy Support  Program (ESP).

ESP offers a variety of customer support options for both plan sponsors and individual participants.

-- ESP Web
ESP's web-based self-service help is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Clients can access ESP Web services and use the sites' powerful search features to locate needed information. ESP Web covers every imaginable topic related to 401k plan management and participation. We've been operating 401k plans almost as long as there's been such an animal; ESP Web is extremely well researched yet presented in easy-to-read layman's language. It includes both 401k Easy-specific information as well as general 401k operations and participation information.

-- ESP E-mail
E-mail support is always free for simple questions that we can answer briefly. E-mailed questions that require a more comprehensive and detailed written response and/or explanation are subject to fees specified below. Turnaround is 24 to 48 hours (depending on the complexity of the issue) from the time we receive a technical support inquiry.

-- ESP Live
Telephone support is available on a per-incident basis. It is charged to the plan sponsor on an incident-by-incident basis, making it a convenient, practical and economical alternative to a "fixed price" annual support fee arrangement.  

There's no sitting on hold with ESP Live; we call you back at your convenience with the answer and field any subsequent questions. Two levels of response times are available; For a chart listing these services and their relative fees, if any. Please see topic 4, below.

All fees are billed via credit card at the time service is rendered.

-- It is always advisable to consult with your tax and/or legal advisors in matters that concern your company's 401k plan.

-- Items and problems not covered by our free technical support include problems or errors caused by mutual fund companies and/or brokerages.
