When Operating Costs Go Down, Profits Go Up

The Contractors Plan gives open shop prevailing wage contractors several ways to significantly decrease operating costs so they can bid more competitively and run jobs more profitably.

Reduce payroll burden.

The reason contractors save money by offering bona fide benefits plans is that when the fringe portion of the prevailing wage is used to provide benefits for hourly workers, this amount is not subject to payroll costs such as FICA, FUTA, general liability, state unemployment taxes and in most states, workers compensation insurance. Although there are variances in the rates, conservatively these taxes represent an additional 17-25 cents on each dollar paid as cash wages.

Increase retirement plan contributions.

With lower taxes and increased deductions, owners and highly compensated employees can choose to put more money towards retirement savings. Your retirement plan includes funds from some of the best-known companies in the U.S. You can choose your own mix of funds, or you can leave the mix to our experts.

Leverage economies of scale.

With The Contractors Plan, the ongoing cost of your benefit plan(s) can be reduced since your company becomes part of a larger retirement or health plan trust arrangement.

We take the stress, time and paperwork out of managing your benefits plan, freeing you to focus on your business.
