what is a safe harbor 401 k plan
What is a “Safe Harbor 401(k)” plan?

As a general rule, a 401(k) plan must satisfy non-discrimination requirements. Many small businesses find this hard to do, and as a result, owners and highly compensated employees may be limited to the amount they can contribute to the plan. Plans now have alternative, simplified methods of meeting the non-discrimination requirements. 401(k) plans that adopt one of these alternative methods are referred to as “safe harbor 401(k)” plans.

UFPC 401(k) Plan Cost & Features

UFPC has negotiated very attractive plan features on your behalf:

1. LOW out-of-pocket costs for the franchisee

  • One-time plan start-up fee of $250
  • Annual plan administration fee of $450 plus $15 per participant. Each plan has a MAXIMUM administration fee of $1,950 per year, no matter how many participants you have.
  • No monthly or quarterly fees

EXAMPLE: Plan A has 20 plan participants

Yearly administration cost for the plan is $450 + (20 x $15) = $750

EXAMPLE: Plan B has 200 plan participants

Yearly administration cost for the plan should be $450 + (200 x $15) = $3,450

BUT, since there is a maximum out of pocket cost negotiated by UFPC, your company pays ONLY $1,950

Regardless of provider, the sum of these 3 fees is the cost for an individual to obtain/maintain an investment under a plan.

Many fund providers move these fees around to look more competitive.
