On an annual basis, MSL performs over 60 employee benefit plan audits, including audits of pension, health and welfare, and 401(k) plans subject to the regulatory authority of the Department of Labor and the Employee Retirement Income Security Act.  From assisting clients in self-correcting operational errors to preparing and reviewing Form 5500, MSL thoroughly understands employee benefit plan audits and can provide exactly the services you need.

Experience – Our team of highly trained and experienced staff has extensive experience in auditing employee benefit plans. We can assist you in negotiating the constantly changing regulatory environment and help ensure that your EBP meets the reporting requirements.
