Employee Communications

Benefit Communications

It’s no secret benefit plans are difficult to understand. You work hard to ensure your employees have good benefit packages, but they may get lost in the details. Misunderstood and underutilized benefits cost you and your employees time, effort, and money.Learn more

Public Pensions

Public Pensions

Our public plan practice has a passion to bring truth and
transparency to public retirement systems. We strive to be
a highly trustworthy source of unbiased information to
public pension stakeholders. Our consultants provide
clients "big picture" insight into their retirement plans
to help them make informed strategic decisions about
plan options, improvements, innovations and
possibilities.Learn more



Dispute Resolution Services

Our Dispute Resolution practice addresses another
of those impediments: the proliferation of opportunistic
lawsuits against defined benefit plans, especially
innovative designs like cash balance plans. Litigation
risk has become a major element in pushing employers –
not just those directly attacked – out of the DB system.
