Hopefully it’s obvious that ForUsAll is committed to producing informative 401(k) and helpful retirement plan resources, and no place is more indicative of that commitment than the ForUsAll 401(k) Blog. We’ve put our investment advisor reps, attorneys, marketing team and even our CEO to work creating solid content for 401(k) plan sponsors. And we’ve also recently invested engineering effort into the blog as well, migrating it from a subdomain to the new forusall.com/401k-blog URL while making back end technology improvements.
Some of our top posts of the quarter have been very well received, getting highlighted in important HR publications like BenefitsLink, or getting hundreds or thousands of visits. Here are some of the top ForUsAll 401(k) blog posts from Q3.

This post outlines some of the key differences to analyze when deciding if your organization should switch to offering a 401(k) over a 403(b).

So high that a lot of 401(k) providers have been sued by their own employees over their plans costs! That’s pretty high. This post also discusses a Yale study that analyzes the impact of high fees on participants’ retirement savings – not to give away a spoiler, but it can be pretty bad. Check out the post to learn more.
