Great blog post on how to find your Minnesota company 401(k) annual costs

I read a great deal of financial information every day. When I read something that will help individual investors make better Minnesota company 401(k) investment management decisions, I like to pass on the information in this space.

The Employee Fiduciary web site’s Frugal Fiduciary Blog had a great article earlier this month on “Finding Hidden 401(k) Fees in Participant Disclosure Notices.”

As stated in the article, annual company 401(k) fees are a huge issue for individual company 401(k) retirement plan participants. Thankfully companies like this one make resources available to help individual investors understand the real costs of their company 401(k) retirement plan investments.
