The Plan's administrative expenses are funded by participant fees and interest income earned on trust accounts of the Plan.  All revenues are used to pay the Plan's administrative expenses and are subject to change.

Administrative Fees
Administrative charges are $20.00 per quarter and the Plan's investment funds are assessed an annualized asset-based fee of 0.04%.  

Other Administrative Fees
Loans - Participants taking a loan are charged a loan origination fee of $50.00, which is deducted from the approved loan amount.  In addition, there is a quarterly maintenance fee of $8.75 which is deducted from the participant's account.

Distribution Requests (Amount Certain requests only) - Participants may request up to five (5) amount certain withdrawals in a calendar year.  Additional requests will be charged a $10.00 fee. 

Self-Directed Brokerage Option (SDBO) - Participants electing to invest in the SDBO are charged a quarterly fee of $12.50, which the Plan's recordkeeper deducts from the participant's account for the administration of the SDBO.

Excessive Trading Policy - Transfers out of any Plan investment option will be assessed a 2% redemption fee on the amounts transferred into that option within the previous thirty-two (32) calendar days.  Any amounts held longer than thirty-two days (32) consecutive calendar days will not be assessed the redemption fee. The minimum fee that will be assessed will be $20 based on a $1,000 trade. The fees collected will be re-invested back into the option in order to offset the decrease in fund value associated with the trades.
