The Unity 401(k) is a Pooled Employer Plan (PEP) designed and managed by NS Capital.

A PEP empowers multiple organizations to unite under a single plan, streamlining the process of providing and managing a retirement plan. This eliminates the need for employers to individually sponsor their own 401(k)s, freeing them from the associated risks and workload.

  • A PEP is considered a single plan under IRC Tax Code and ERISA

  • Elimination of Form 5500 and related costs/ PEP is single signer 

  • Elimination of ERISA Bond, Fiduciary Liability Insurance and related costs

  • Elimination of plan document restatement fees

  • Elimination of individual plan audit
