The importance of internal controls for benefit plans series

INSIGHT ARTICLE  | 

With the compliance environment for employee benefit plans constantly changing and regulators focused more than ever on a plan's controls, it is imperative that plan sponsors have the proper procedures and controls in place. A plan document alone no longer constitutes evidence of established procedures. However, designing and implementing the proper controls is an essential – yet difficult – task.

RSM US LLP's benefit plan team have created a series of articles and webcasts to help plan sponsors navigate the issues surrounding internal controls for plans.

Below are links to RSM's employee benefit plan audit internal controls series articles and webcasts.
