A biweekly topical newsletter from PLANADVISER
PEPs, MEPs and PPPs
Some in the retirement plan industry believe multiple employer plans (MEPs) and pooled employer plans (PEPs) will be transformational in the 401(k) space and lead to better outcomes for virtually all stakeholders. Some even argue PEPs, in particular, could eventually render single employer plans and MEPs much less valuable to employers and their people. Collected below is a series of articles on this important and evolving topic. We hope you share some of what you read with a client or colleague, and we encourage you to let us know what you think about MEPs, PEPs and PPPs.
