Employee Benefit Plans

The selection of an independent auditor is an important fiduciary responsibility of plan management, in addition to the financial reporting coordination between multiple parties.

An independent auditor presents a third-party opinion for the plan participants and management, Department of Labor, and other such privy parties to provide assurance that the plan is operating according to the obligations and objectives stated in the plan document. A financial statement audit:

  • Satisfies a plan sponsor’s Form 5500 filing
  • Assists in safeguarding a plan’s financial stability
  • Provides financial information to participants and those charged with governance about the plan’s ability to pay benefits
  • Helps plan management in fulfilling and improving its legal obligations and plan operations
