What are plan administration fees?

Plan administration fees pay for the plan’s day-to-day operations and are usually charged and paid for in one of three ways: 

  • As investment fees deducted directly from your investment returns before they hit your account (for example, a revenue share of 0.25%)
  • As an additional expense out of participant accounts (for example, $50 annually per participant deducted from each participant account)
  • Charged directly to the employer as a flat fee (for example, a $1,000 annual maintenance fee)

Guideline charges one all inclusive fee for services. See this article to learn more about your Guideline fees.
