Corporate Retirement Plans

A High-Touch, Low-Maintenance Solution For Your Small Business. 

We offer broad-based and customized corporate retirement planning services for small businesses. The people that keep your operations running are invaluable, and we believe that providing them with actionable and reliable retirement savings incentives will boost engagement, growth, and workplace satisfaction.

We take an individualized approach to providing retirement planning services for your company, offering experienced investment and financial planning guidance with dedicated client service support. We provide a wide range of retirement planning options, so that your employees can have access to opportunities that work for them. We go above and beyond simple management, as we also offer pathways to education, comprehensive financial planning, and more.


Affiance Financial creates lasting partnerships with employers, to help you navigate the varied and ever-changing retirement planning options that are available. We give your employees the tools and guidance to confidently prepare for retirement. 

Corporate retirement plans we provide include:

401(k) Plans

We'll help you set up a robust 401(k) plan for your employees with simple automatic payroll withholdings, matching capabilities, and more. Affiance Financial can assist in making the right decisions, whether it be a traditional 401(k) or Roth — explaining the tax benefits of each for your business and your employees.

403(b) Plans

For tax-exempt organizations and public schools, retirement planning works differently. We'll help you navigate the complexities of 403(b) planning to give educators, government employees, healthcare workers, librarians, and more the retirement opportunities they deserve.

Defined Benefit Plans

Defined benefits plans can be a complicated retirement option, but we'll help simplify the process so that you can concentrate on your business. Also known as a pension plan or qualified benefit plan, a defined benefit plan takes into account the length of employment and salary history to define the funds. As the employer, you'll be responsible for the planning and risk — working with Affiance Financial’s corporate retirement plan team can help you navigate the uncertainty and make this plan a reality.
