It’s already the middle of July, and for many retirement plan sponsors Form 5500 will be due by the end of this month unless extended. And if you’re a plan sponsor whose 5500 must include an ERISA audit, selecting a plan auditor is a fiduciary function.

Here is a link to my column in the July  issue of Employee Benefit news about what you need to know about ERISA audits. (Free registration may be required). Employee Benefit news is an employee benefit publication which provides free newsletters, seminars and podcasts from industry experts, and online content for plan sponsors. You can check it out here.
