    Primers are non-authoritative practice tools developed to assist member firms in preparing staff for the employee benefit plan audits they perform.

    Federal law requires employee benefit plans with 100 or more participants to have an audit as part of their obligation to file an annual return/report.

    These advisories provide valuable information on various topics such as plan internal controls, monitoring service providers and valuing and reporting plan investments.
