You could incur DOL penalties up to $1,000 per day for failure to complete an employee benefit plan audit.

Aprio EBP audits help you mitigate 401(k) and 403(b) fiduciary risk

Managing a retirement plan can be a complex proposition. The failure to fully execute the fiduciary duties ERISA requires can lead to significant personal liability exposure.

Aprio’s proactive approach to mandatory third-party benefit plan audits helps you identify and stay ahead of compliance requirements before they result in problems, including enforcement actions and costly fines.
