What our MEP 401k service entails

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an MEP 401k plan?


An MEP 401k stands for a Multi-Employer Plan. This is a plan that is designed to encourage businesses to offer a retirement benefit without having to carry the burden of all the administrative tasks that come with offering a retirement benefit. This plan is the most common employer-sponsored defined contribution plan nationwide.

At Greenleaf Business Solutions, we offer 2 different options – the Closed and the Open plan. While the Closed Plan brings straightforward solutions, the Open Plan is flexible and fully customizable depending on your business needs and goals. We can perform an initial analysis and then offer the most appropriate solution for your business.

Can an employer offer multiple 401k plans?


With our various MEP offerings, our clients can have the freedom to create a custom structure for their retirement. They can also choose to offer our Closed MEP which allows companies to not be overwhelmed with customizing their retirement plan. We have already gone through that for them, having vetted some of the best funds for their employees’ various retirement goals.

What are the advantages of participating in an MEP?


Taking part in an MEP has numerous advantages for all parties involved. From the employers’ perspective, the number one perk may be that it takes the administrative and compliance burden that a company would have to handle so that a retirement benefit can be offered. Since Greenleaf is the plan sponsor, we handle all of the compliance, auditing, filing, and 5500 forms for our participating clients.

What is the requirement to establish a Multiple Employer Plan?


There is no requirement. If you have just one employee interested in a retirement benefit, you as the employer are eligible to offer this to them. We can walk you through the process to help you understand why our MEP 401k service can benefit not only your employees but also your business in the long run.

What is the difference between an MEP and a PEP?


A MEP is a Multi-Employer Plan while a PEP is a Pooled Employer Plan. A multiple employer plan allows each company to be separate whereas a PEP forces each participating company into one. MEP also allows a collection of individual companies to have the freedom of choosing various fund lineups. A PEP is a single plan for all companies so flexibility in offerings can be limited.

Who can sponsor a multiple employer plan?


Greenleaf Business Solutions is the sponsor to these various MEP 401k offerings. This is the most attractive feature of this integrated solution: we do not have our clients take on administrative burdens. Instead, we organize and run each MAP on their behalf, safeguarding them against any potential issues and eventualities that may arise.
