Retirement plans are a key benefit for your organization. A solid plan with a variety of investment options is an asset to both recruiting and retention.  

Unfortunately, acting as a plan sponsor is complex. We are committed to providing plan sponsors with the resources and knowledge necessary to achieve plan excellence. With our dedication and guidance, we provide a detail-oriented approach that helps to streamline the processes of plan design, investment monitoring, fiduciary compliance, participant education, and fee benchmarking.

Thurston Springer Retirement Services provides plan fiduciaries with comprehensive consulting services to help them create competitive, holistic plan designs that address company goals and help drive participants working toward retirement readiness.

Our team of experts provide plan design assistance and guide plan sponsors through the ever-evolving retirement plan landscape.
