Helping KNN Members Become Employers of Choice
Nearly every nonprofit seeking to implement or change their employee retirement program tells KNN the same thing. They are looking for a retirement solution to help them become an employer of choice that:
- is easy to launch and manage,
- protects the organization, and
- is affordable.
New federal regulations have paved the way for KNN to launch a Packaged Retirement Solution for our members that creates economies of scale and provides significant administrative efficiencies - making it easier than ever to affordably offer a great retirement benefit for your employees.
What is the KNN Retirement Solution?
Our Retirement Solution is a qualified retirement plan adopted by multiple, unrelated employers through their KNN membership. This packaged solution brings together vetted partners providing KNN members with the opportunity to outsource many of the important administrative, recordkeeping, and fiduciary services of a 401k plan. Essentially, this packaged solution gives nonprofits access to a professionally maintained 401k plan without all of the headache.
How Can the KNN Retirement Solution Save Us Time & Money?
Our Retirement Solution provides KNN members an opportunity for potential cost savings, fewer administrative responsibilities, and other benefits when compared to operating a single employer plan on your own. Time is money. KNN's Retirement Solution provides our members exclusive access to a customized solution, a professionally maintained investment menu, and streamlined administration that reduces the most time-consuming tasks of managing a 401k plan for your employees.
