Calculating 401(k) Plan Fees

How can you tell if you’re getting a good deal for your 401(k) plan? Fisher can help.


There are typically four types of 401(k) plan fees.


Fees paid to a plan advisor for investment management, fiduciary services, vendor management and employee support.


Also called โ€œFund Fees,โ€ these fees are associated with investments within a plan.


Fees paid to a record keeper and a third-party administrator (TPA) for the day-to-day plan operations.


Fees paid for audits or legal counsel to help you comply with laws and regulations.
