Retirement benefits built for

Small Business

Until now, employee benefits have been out of reach for many smaller, local businesses. The recently passed SECURE Act created a new type of 401(k), a Pooled Employer Plan, that allows employers to join a larger plan rather than starting their own. The Central PA 401(k), by Conrad Siegel, now enables businesses under 70 employees to offer a 401(k) that’s simple, flexible and affordable.


The Central PA 401(k), by Conrad Siegel, is designed to be hands-off for business owners. We take care of everything including selecting the investment menu, filing government forms, plan design, and the ongoing management of your plan saving you and your staff valuable time.


The plan is designed for small business budgets. There’s no initial funding requirement with low, elastic monthly fees based on your number of employees. Employers may also be eligible for tax incentives for starting a 401(k) plan.


Saving under the plan is optional for employees and you choose how generous your employer contribution will be. Contribution options include Safe Harbor, Matching, and Profit Sharing. Employees can choose to make either traditional pre-tax or Roth contributions.


The plan is fully managed by Conrad Siegel, resulting in you having one dedicated plan contact. Your employees also have access to a dedicated investment education contact that they can talk to, at no additional cost.

Finally – a 401(k) Plan built for you and managed by retirement experts

A plan designed for small business that is hands-off, affordable, flexible, and includes support. For one price, everything is covered: custodial, plan administration, recordkeeping, investment advisement, investment education, ERISA bond coverage, and fiduciary oversight.
