About Cornerstone

Selecting, customizing, and implementing a qualified plan is complex. Our team manages all the nuances so you can make informed decisions. We always develop a plan design in the best interest of the employer from a tax-efficiency perspective.

We are 100% independent and receive no revenue from anything having to do with plan assets. Thus, we have no conflict of interest whatsoever. You will always get unbiased truth from any and every member of our team. We bill on a fixed fee schedule which means that you don’t get charged by the hour. Call any time. Talk as long as you need. There is nothing that we appreciate more than an informed plan sponsor.
