The Paychex Advantage

It’s our business to help you grow your business and delight your clients. You be the hero. Let us be your support.

There's a Better Way to Be 401(k)onfident

Ask yourself:

  • Could you use more time and resources to answer clients' technical questions about their plans?
  • Do you need an easier way to keep up-to-date on constantly changing regulations?
  • Are proprietary investment choices limiting your clients’ options?
  • How many times have you thought: “My time is precious. I need something more efficient.”

The good news: there is a solution. And Paychex can help.

  • Flexibility

    Each client and each plan is unique. That’s why Paychex Retirement Services features flexible plan designs and a wide range of investment options with no proprietary requirements, ever. We are investment-neutral and client-centric.

  • Service

    As the trusted advisor to your clients, you are the investment expert. Paychex provides the means, administration, and recordkeeping to help deliver a plan that is right for them. And we provide the dedicated service you'd expect, in the form that suits your needs, from do-it-all-for-me to DIY online, before and after the sale.

  • We’re In It for the Long Haul

    As a holistic provider of retirement, payroll, HR services, and more, Paychex specializes in all the “behind-the-scenes” activities. We understand the flow of data and the regulations from both payroll and 401(k), the IRS, the DOL. In fact, we’ve been doing it for more than 40 years — and supporting financial advisors for more than 20 years.

    What’s more, you and your clients can rest assured we’ll be here for the long haul. In times of calm and of volatility in the industry, Paychex has stayed the course. Stability is a cornerstone of our business.

Beyond 401(k)

The Power of One

Paychex offers so much more than just retirement services, so much more than payroll and HR. Our solid history of catering to small businesses has advanced to support the complex human capital management needs of any size business, thanks to our robust Paychex Flex® solution.

Paychex Flex is what makes our solutions automated and seamless. But it’s more than simple integration of services. In fact, it isn’t integration at all — it’s one platform, one employee record. It’s time-saving and error-reducing, minimizing administrative work, making life easier for plan sponsors — which means less involvement for you on the small stuff. And more time focused on having meaningful, more lucrative conversations.
