What We do


Big Plans for Small and Medium Sized Businesses

  Schneider Consultants provides plan design, participant education, and financial and fiduciary advisory services for 401(k) retirement and prevailing wage benefit plans. We specialize in working with small to medium size companies.  Our systems and processes help relieve the day-to-day administrative and fiduciary burdens while enhancing experiences and outcomes for both the employer and the plan participants.  Schneider Consultants is a Minnesota organization started in 2006 with the goal of providing true value-driven results. We believe in our ability to service your business and look forward to the opportunity to show you how. 


Complimentary Benchmarking and Plan Analysis

Based on current fiduciary standards, it is important for employers offering 401(k) plans to justify any expenses paid out of a plan’s assets. The most efficient way to accomplish this is to compare current plan services and costs to what the industry charges and provides. Our complimentary benchmarking service takes this process and expands it to include plan performance numbers for comparison.

How We Do it
