ERISA Audit Services

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) stipulates that retirement plans with 100 or more eligible participants must be audited annually. As an AICPA member with specialized training related to employee benefit plans, HW&Co. provides qualified professionals who have extensive expertise and experience with audit employee benefit plans and Form 5500 filings, which we complete in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards (GAAS). Our auditors also monitor the ever-changing auditing landscape to stay up-to-date on rules and regulations to help ensure your organization remains compliant with ERISA standards.
