Dedicated partnerships

Our mission is to put retirement readiness within reach for everyone. Let’s make it happen for your employees.

Expertise you need. A partner you can trust.

Let’s work together to deliver value for you and your employees.

Providing the right plans, right tools, and right resources is what we do. But that’s not all we do. Working with advisors and third-party administrators (TPAs), we provide the expertise to build the best retirement plan possible.

Bringing financial advisors and TPAs to you

We bring you a flexible service model that provides the expertise you need, including your choice of an advisor or TPA. Let’s meet these key players:

Advisors offer investment expertise, 401(k) plan oversight, and access to resources that can help your employees reach their goals.

TPAs can assist you with compliance testing and other administrative services to help maximize the benefits of your plan.

Offering options that make sense

We believe small and midsize businesses deserve access to the same low-cost, high-quality investments as everybody else. That requires a partner who prioritizes participants’ interests above their own.

Our investment platform can put participants on the path to retirement readiness—even if that journey includes third-party options.

For more than a decade, VRPA has been dedicated to giving those working in small businesses the quality of retirement plans typically exclusive to participants at large companies. Today, when our sense of security is being tested at every front, we want planning for financial well-being to be one less worry. Mark Sokol, Principal Vanguard Retirement Plan Access
