Since your employees are your company’s most valuable asset, we know that you want to provide the best benefit options possible. Therefore, you seek to entrust your benefit plan in the hands of accountants and business advisors who have the highest integrity and objectivity, as well as depth of experience and knowledge in working with other employee benefit plans.

Schneider Downs is among the top 60 largest accounting firms in the United States and maintains a comprehensive, dedicated employee benefit plan practice within the firm. Schneider Downs is one of the top firms nationally to provide audits and related services to more than 250 plans on an annual basis.
