The Group Retirement Program is a Multiple Employer Plan (MEP) meant to help small businesses group together to have access to more affordable and robust 401(k) investment options.
A company joins their 401(k) plan with those of other companies to form a much larger plan. Professional administrators then oversee the plan and accept legal responsibility and accountability for doing so, which means your name comes off the Master plan document.
