Hunter Benefits Consulting Group, Inc. Complete

Consulting Complete Services – Our most comprehensive plan design level represents the traditional level of retirement plan consulting. This service level is appropriate for companies with complex Plan design needs, complex corporate structures, or Plans with more than 100 participants needing a large plan audit. Plan design services allow for the maximum flexibility allowed by statute.

This type of Plan design is used by plan sponsors with a significant percentage of highly compensated employees.  Generally, the targeted participants are substantially older than the average age of the staff members

Typical Clients: 1) Professional Services or Consulting firm wanting to give the largest contribution allowed to the fewest number of employees, 2) Plan Sponsors with related companies or service groups, multiple employer plans, etc. or 3) Plans with more than 100 eligible participants.


Hunter Benefits Consulting Group, Inc. Streamliner

Streamliner Services – A mid-level service product for the employer whose needs are less complex than those offered at our Full Consulting Services level, but want more flexibility than the essential Solution. The employer can select certain options such as the eligibility provisions, the vesting schedule, Roth contribution availability, and other options.

This level is best for an employer who wants a Plan as easy to operate as a Simple IRA but with larger contribution limits and more Plan design options. Streamliner is available with American Funds Recordkeeper Direct, the LRS open architecture option and the following group annuity platforms - John Hancock, Principal, Transamerica and Voya. Plans must have fewer than 99 Participants. Billing is a mix of fixed monthly fee and a percentage of Plan assets.

Typical Clients: 1) Clients wanting some limited flexibility in plan design, 2) Plan Sponsors with “simple” Controlled Group issues, 3) new Plans with sponsors wanting to limit out-of-pocket costs, or 4) Clients who prefer to use institutional share class funds (i shares) or Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).
