Employee Benefit Plan Audits

If your company’s employee retirement plan or benefit plan has more than 100 participants, it is likely that an audit is required to be compliant with Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) regulations.

At RINA we’ve performed employee benefit plan audits since ERISA was passed in 1974. We have extensive experience auditing 401(k) plans, 403(b) plans, defined benefit pension plans, profit sharing plans, health and welfare plans and ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plans) for a range of companies and organizations.
