FEE STRUCTURE
DWC designed our standard flat base fee schedule of $1,700 (no per participant fees until above 50 participants) to include the base compliance, government reporting (Form 5500) and standard employer calculations (employer match, safe harbor, pro-rata/integrated profit sharing) that the majority of plans use on an annual base and then charge extra for additional services, only if needed. DWC does not charge asset based fees nor do we accept any indirect compensation. This cost competitive approach allows our fee schedule to be extremely competitive and inclusive for all standard services versus using a higher fee schedule (base plus per participant starting with participant #1) and include services that the majority of plans do not need. In addition, the DWC plan document fee is $850.00 (Relius Volume Submitter document).
