Employee Benefit
Plan Audits

Integrity is a two-way street: the trustworthiness of your people demands reliability of the financial structures that you put into place to take care of them.

In a world with increasing scrutiny over employee benefit plans, how compliant are you? Sansiveri brings critical and uncompromising regulatory insight to ensure that you meet both professional standards and those established by the Department of Labor. We’re constantly staying ahead of the curve when it comes to changing pronouncements through continuous training, including annual attendance at the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) National Employee Benefit Plan Conference. Sansiveri is also a member of the AICPA Employee Benefit Plan Audit Quality Center, which offers additional support for performing quality audits in this unique and complex area.

What we do

  • Audits required under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Sansiveri currently performs audits of the following employee benefit plans:
    • Defined Contribution Benefit Plans
    • Defined Benefit Pension Plans
    • Employee Stock Ownership Plans
  • Audit approach tailored for your plan’s specific risks and needs
  • Audit timeline based upon client expectations and deadlines, meeting all reporting requirements, and advice throughout the year
