The Textile Industry Retirement Plan has been created exclusively for IFAI members. The plan acts as one large 401(k) plan and is treated as such from a government reporting perspective. When your company joins the plan your employees have access to a suite of competitive investment options. Most of the administrative duties fall to the plan saving your business valuable time and resources. Avoid administrative burdens and expenses that may be associated with a standalone plan.
