Retirement & Stock Plans

The Foley/Connelly professionals works closely with business clients to help put in place a retirement or other employee benefit plan that fits with your goals and circumstances. The wide array of options can be difficult to decipher and often assumptions about the cost of starting or changing plans is intimidating. We put costs and benefits into the larger context of succession, tax, and accumulation planning. This process puts into perspective the power of implementing a benefits plan through your business.

Almost as important as having a plan is making sure it complies with current laws and regulations. We are committed to assisting you with understanding any fiduciary duties you may have and guiding you in your responsibilities along the way. The extra effort can make a big difference over the long-term. We assist businesses with already-established plans in:

  • Compliance with fiduciary requirements
  • Education and enrollment of employees
  • Performance review of available investment options
  • Asset allocation

Retirement and Employee Benefit plans can often be used to transition out of a business. We can help establish Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOP) and Defined Benefit and insurance-based plans for older owners who have put most of their wealth into their business.

Retirement plans for a business are by not all alike. We assist businesses and their owners to hone their goals into a strategy, and finally, a plan recommendation. Some of the outcomes:

  • Employee Bonus plans
  • Self-employed plans (SEP-IRA, Keough, Solo-401(k))
  • SIMPLE-IRAs and small-company plans
  • 401(k), 403(b), and Profit-Sharing Plan
  • Executive Compensation Plans
  • Split Dollar Plans
  • Deferred Compensation Plans
