Complex Area: Straightforward Solutions

Powers Stromberg Pension Consulting has been providing retirement plan consulting since 1972. We are a team of experienced professionals in the fields of law, accounting and pension administration. We do not sell investment products, so we are independent experts whose sole interest is in providing organizations with professional, objective advice in establishing and maintaining IRS qualified retirement plans, including profit sharing plans, 401(k) plans, money purchase pension plans, cross-tested plans, defined benefit plans and 403(b) plans for non-profit and government organizations. We have a fee schedule used to establish and administer plans, so the cost is transparent and affordable.

Neither Powers Stromberg Pension Consulting nor Mark sell investment products to retirement plans, but Mark has previously held designations as a Chartered Life Underwriter, Chartered Financial Consultant and Registered Investment Adviser, giving him insight into the investment side of Retirement Plans.
