Wrap Plan Preparation

Under ERISA, all employee welfare benefit plans must have a written plan document to identify basic information about the plan. The MZQ wrap document is designed to help ensure clients meet applicable legal
requirements under ERISA, the Internal Revenue Code, HIPAA, the Affordable Care Act and more. Let the MZQ Compliance Team help you stay on top of your game.

5500 Form Prep

ERISA plans with over 100 participants must file Form 5500 annually. Unsure what to do with all those carrier disclosures? A dedicated MZQ Compliance Specialist will help you through the entire 5500 filing process, from preparation to filing, including the Summary Annual Report.

ACA Penalty Resolution

Things don’t always go right. Whether you’ve received an IRS Letter 226-J assessing penalties under the employer mandate, an IRS Letter 5699 for failing to file, or an IRS Letter 972CG for filing late, IRS penalty assessments can strike fear in your heart. Our knowledgeable team can guide you through the IRS penalty process. Now, more than ever, you need seasoned experts to lead the way.

Non-Discrimination Testing

To qualify for tax-favored status, your benefit plan must prove it does not discriminate in favor of certain highly-paid employees. Let MZQ take the guesswork out of determining if you are in compliance. Our Non-Discrimination Testing Specialist will review your demographics and provide you with results and recommendations.

HIPAA Compliance

The manual incorporates both privacy and security policies and procedures. And, since documentation alone is not enough, we also include web-based HIPAA training for your HR staff.
