If your plan is audited by DOL or IRS we are enrolled to work directly with them on your behalf to resolve any issues. You may not have to hire an Attorney/CPA to handle inquiries.

 

Our first-class service sets us apart from other providers. The electronic filling of the Form 5500 and 8955-SSA can be challenging for someone unfamiliar with the process. We upload all forms and audit schedules, and ask only you manually sign 5500 that we provide. ASI will validate, attach and E-file the returns on your behalf.

 

The recent fee disclosure requirements issued by the DOL were challenging for clients and vendors alike. During the process, we worked with the vendors to provide a complete turn-key fee disclosure document for the client. We did this at no extra charge as we saw that many of our clients would have been out of compliance had we not stepped in.

 

Atteberry/Searle, Incorporated cares about our clients. Our team strives to create long lasting business relationships based on dedication, knowledge, experience and trust.
