What is Workers Comp?
Workers compensation provides wages and medical benefits in case of an on-the-job injury. In exchange, the employee gives up his or her right to sue the employer for compensation.
We provide Pay As You Go Workers Compensation plans where you pay the premium based on your payroll run rather than deposits or upfront payments.
Most states mandate employers to carry workers comp insurance coverage because it protects the employer from potential lawsuits by employees.
Most importantly it also protects employees from abusive employers (companies who fail to provide the right tools and good working conditions for their employees).
How is PAY AS YOU GO Different?
Pay As You Go (PAYG) is the kind of Workers Comp plan that allows you to pay the exact amount of workers compensation premium based on your payroll actual payroll amounts after every pay run. Therefore, PAYG Workers Comp is different and better than the traditional plan since there is no deposit or down payment.
What does that mean?
Well, your premium is calculated on actual payroll hence making audits are also extremely simplified (almost non-existent). Consequently, PAYG saves everyone involved valuable time and money!
Want to learn a little more? See the chart below for a comparison between traditional and PAYG.
Traditional Workers Comp
Pay-As-You-Go Workers Comp
The employer is subject to a minimum of 10-25% of the annual estimated premium
PAYG does not require a deposit or down payment
The annual premium is estimated based on projected payroll for the entire year
Premium is actual. It is calculated on payroll at each pay period.
Traditional workers comp requires actual on site audit (or sending actual reports), documentation and possibly additional premiums could be either due or refunded
Audits are handled internally in most cases. No additional paperwork is needed and there is very minimal adjustments, if any

Our retirement plans are built to meet the needs and, perhaps more importantly, the budget of your small business.
Unlike some 401(k) plans, Express(k) and Custom(k) are built on a flat-fee pricing structure. In other words, we don’t make money on the amount of money held in your plan.
What this means to you and your employees is that you won’t pay more in fees just because your plan balance grows. If you put more money away, you should get more out of it.

What is a 401(k) Plan
A 401(k) allows you to save for retirement by putting away money on a pre-tax basis, which helps you to lower your taxable income. This means you’ll get less of a tax bite on your annual salary in the short term, while your long-term investments grow tax-free until you’re ready to retire.
Some 401(k) plan providers also offer an after-tax (Roth) option, which means you won’t be taxed at the time you withdraw that money because you’ve already paid taxes on it.
The 401(k) Basics
Contributions (also called “deferrals”) refer to the money put into a 401(k) plan. You can have up to $19,500 (2020 and 2021) deducted from your paycheck and contributed to the plan. If you are age 50 or older, you can contribute an extra $6,500, for a total of $26,000 (2020 and 2021)
Employer match is optional. If the employer chooses to, it is either an all-employees profit-sharing plan or a match to each participant's 401(k) contribution (up to $37,500 in 2020 and $38,500 in 2021). Employer contributions are tax-deferred and tax-deductible.
The maximum contributions allowed per individual (employee and employer) is $57,000 ($58,000 in 2021). If age 50 or older, include your $6,500 catch up). This means if you put away the full $19,500 in individual contributions and $37,500 ($38,500 for 2021) employer contribution
