Almost a year after passage of the SECURE Act, the U.S. retirement plan market is preparing for what could be the biggest change to employer-provided retirement benefits since the launch of the 401(k) plan.
The SECURE Act permits creation of pooled employer plans, so-called PEPs, offered by pooled plan providers, known as PPPs, which enable U.S. employers to outsource their retirement plans to third-party providers starting in 2021.
