Unique Taft-Hartley Recordkeeping Needs

Unique Taft-Hartley Recordkeeping Needs

Union plans have special recordkeeping needs. Servicing these plans requires a rare proficiency and a thorough understanding of the administrative complexities associated with these unique plans. Unions may wish to customize participant statements to track hours worked as well as view plan assets by union member. Given the uniqueness of Taft-Hartley plan administration and recordkeeping, vendor capabilities should be viewed differently from standard single employer plans when performing due diligence on service providers.
