Employee Benefit Plans

Stay on top of your responsibilities as plan sponsor — and in your fiduciary role — while keeping the future retirement and health benefits of your employees safe.

Opportunities await

The risks you face as a plan sponsor can also lead to opportunities. At CLA, we view compliance services as powerful tools to improve operations, reduce waste, and tighten controls.

We’re committed to helping address what matters most to you:

  • Managing greater regulatory compliance responsibilities
  • Increased scrutiny from the regulators
  • Increasing cost of benefit plans
  • Meeting the expectations of a workforce that counts on employer-sponsored benefit plans
  • Selecting and monitoring the right service providers
  • Facilitating an efficient and effective plan audit

CLA has provided employee benefit plan audit, tax compliance, and consulting services for more than 60 years. We’re one of the leading providers of employee benefit plan audits in the country, and we offer compliance and consulting services that can unlock opportunities for more comprehensive results.

Our services go beyond simply providing an audit of your plan’s financial statements.
