Financial Planning and Retirement Investing

The Future Is Bright!

Included in most of our PEO, ASO, and Staffing plans is the ability for you and your team to prepare for the future financially. Through TEL’s unique pre-funded 401(k) plan and other investment options available to our clients, our advisor can help you not only plan for the future, but achieve your financial goals.


Financial Planning 

The 401(k) plan at TEL can be adopted by TEL clients. At the time they adopt our plan, our clients can customize their agreement to fit their individual needs and preferences. Items that can be customized include safe harbor, matching, eligibility requirements, and more.

Matthew Schmidt has been handling the advisory role on our 401(k) offering since 2012. Matthew’s knowledge of the industry and his sound advice led us to partner with American Pension Services, LLC for third party administration services who specialize in multi-employer plan design and maintenance. His experience and expertise with the John Hancock platform and all that it can offer our businesses and participants has been valuable as the plan continues to grow and become adopted by more and more TEL clients.
