Competitive retirement plans help employers recruit and retain talent, but they are also expensive, risky and time consuming. By delegating plan duties to the Lockton Retirement Pooled Employer Plan (PEP), employers eliminate work and risk and potentially offer more services at a lower cost to employees.

Lockton, as 3(38) fiduciary advisor, chooses investment options, monitors ongoing performance, and negotiates the best fees possible.
Participating employers share the cost of only one audit.
