The Group Plan Advisory Service fee is $645 for companies with less than ten employees. When a client engages our Group Plan Advisory Service and decides not to implement the Group Plan, we waive the fee for the Individual/Family Advisory service.
There is usually no fee when we take over servicing of an existing Group Plan as the broker consultant.
For Start-up Group Plans, we suggest starting with a complimentary phone conversation to confirm that the Group Requirements can be met before engaging our Group Advisory Service.
