Make Retirement Easier for Your Clients
As the nation’s number one recordkeeper*, Paychex offers a wide range of traditional 401(k) and Safe Harbor plans, 403(b), profit-sharing plans, and more. Completely investment-neutral, we have thousands of investment options to choose from. Plus, tiered pricing for cost-sharing options, 3(38) investor management, online auto-enrollment and more.
Seamless Recordkeeping & TPA Services
All-in-one bundled payroll integration service offers Paychex clients a greater level of convenience. We also provide recordkeeping and third-party administration (TPA) services, bundled or standalone.
Fairness, Transparency, and No Hidden Fees
Our fee-levelized 401(k) feature ensures unbiased investment options and fee transparency. Paychex does not keep the revenue-sharing payments, or “concessions”, that mutual funds routinely give to recordkeepers and TPAs. Instead, payments go to the participants.
Online Plan Management - Access Plans from Anywhere
See all your Paychex plans and total AUM in one place — and on the go — via desktop, tablet, or smartphone. Plus, manage your clients’ plans and investments and access your full book of business with Paychex in our easy-to-use Advisor Console.
Plan Set-Up with Hassle-free Onboarding
Since Paychex onboards thousands of 401(k) plans each year, we know how to make the process of starting or converting a retirement plan smooth and trouble-free. A dedicated implementation manager will guide plan sponsors through onboarding, enrollment, training and more.
